REGULATIONS

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:-

PEI-Student Contract

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.

Students may download a copy of the PEI-Student Contract here. More details are available at CPE’s website (www.cpe.gov.sg)

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 (Policy Number:Z/17/BM00/000608) from 01 March 2017 to 28 February 2018. More details about FPS is available at www.cpe.gov.sg.
