CPE seeks to protect the welfare and interest of students by upholding stringent regulatory standards and quality assurance. The Enhanced Registration Framework, as set out under the Private Education (PE) Act and Regulations, states all the requirements PEIs must meet in order to operate. Should the PEI and/or its managers contravene the PE Act and/or Regulations, enforcement action such as written warnings, financial penalties, suspension or cancellation of registration, or prosecution may be taken.
Enforcement Powers of CPE Inspectors
A CPE inspector may, under the provision of the PE Act (Cap. 247A) Sections 57 and 58, enter and inspect the premises of any private education institution (PEI) to ascertain if the Act is being complied with.
