British Council in Singapore has been awarded an EduTrust certification renewal for another 4 years.
British Council was among the first few Private Education Institutes (PEIs) in Singapore to be awarded this prestigious EduTrust certification for 4 years in 2011, when this quality assurance scheme was introduced.
A private education institution is awarded EduTrust certification if it has achieved the stipulated standards in the areas of:
- Management commitment and responsibilities
- Corporate governance and administration
- External recruitment agents
- Student protection and support services
- Academic processes and assessment of students
- Quality assurance, monitoring and results.
The EduTrust Certification Scheme is a voluntary scheme administered by the Council for Private Education (CPE) for PEIs in Singapore.
While the EduTrust Certification Scheme is voluntary, it is one of the prerequisites which PEIs that enrol international students must meet to qualify for the issue of Student Passes, as stipulated by the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA).
The scheme provides a means for better PEIs to differentiate themselves as having achieved higher standards in key areas of management and provision of educational services.
