The EduTrust Certification Scheme (EduTrust) is a quality assurance scheme administered by CPE for Private Education Institutions (PEIs) in Singapore. It aims to distinguish private schools that are able to consistently maintain a high standard of quality in the overall provision of education services and make continual improvements that lead to positive student outcomes.
By the year 2003 Shelton College International was one of the first 20 pioneering private education organisation schools to receive the Singapore Quality Class Award. In the year 2005 Shelton was one of the first few SQC schools to implement the Student Protection Scheme (SPS) and is at the forefront of the accreditation assessment.
The Fee Protection Scheme (FPS) serves to protect students’ fees in the event a private education institution is unable to continue operating due to insolvency, and/or regulatory closure. The Fee Protection Scheme also protects students if the private education institution fails to pay penalties or return fees to the students arising from judgment made against it by the Singapore courts.
EduTrust-certified private education institutions are required to adopt the Fee Protection Scheme to provide full protection to all fees paid by their students. All fees refer to all monies paid by the students to be enrolled in a private education institution, excluding the course application fee, agent commission fee (if applicable), miscellaneous fees (non-compulsory and non-standard fee paid only when necessary or where applicable, for example, the re-exam fee or charges for credit card payment etc.)
