PRIVATE EDUCATION ACT
In December 2009, the new Private Education Act is legislated and a Council for Private Education (CPE) was set up to regulate the private education industry in Singapore. All Private Education Institutions (PEIs) are required to comply with the regulations under the Act in order to continue operations.
Textile and Fashion Industry Training Centre (TaF.tc) has adopt the following requirements:-
With the aim of enhancing both parents’ and students’ confidence in the quality of education in Singapore, CPE has stipulated that all PEIs must sign a PEI-Student Contract with students. TaF.tc has adopted the standard PEI-Student Contract which protects the interests of Students. The contract includes the terms and conditions governing the relationship between the student and TaF.tc. TaF.tc will honour all terms and conditions in the contract and in all communication materials.
Fee Protection Scheme
The Fee Protection Scheme (FPS) serves to protect students’ fees in the event that a PEI is unable to continue operating due to insolvency, and/or regulatory closure. The FPS also protects if the PEI fails to pay penalties or return fees to the students arising from judgements made against it by the Singapore courts.
TaF.tc has appointed Lonpac Insurance Bhd as our FPS insurance provider. More details about FPS is available at www.cpe.gov.sg.

Effective 1 November 2015, Singapore Citizens (SC) and Singapore Permanent Residents (SPR) will be covered under the new Medishield Life scheme and thus no additional medical insurance will be purchased for these students.
TaF.tc has purchased a group medical insurance scheme for all its students (except SC/SPR). This medical insurance scheme will have a minimum coverage as follows : an annual coverage limit of S$20,000 per student, covers up to B2 wards/6-bedder wards (conditions apply) in Singapore Government and Restructured hospitals; and provides for 24 hours coverage in Singapore and overseas (if student is involved in TaF.tc Singapore-related activities) throughout the course duration.
The mandatory medical insurance purchase described above does not apply to students studying on a part-time basis or those taking courses that are no more than 30 days or 50 hours in duration.
