The Private Education Act
Under the Private Education Act, legislated in December 2009, a Committee for Private Education was set up to regulate the private education industry in Singapore. From 03 October 2016, the Committee for Private Education became part of a new statutory board – Skills Future Singapore (SSG). Under the new structure, the SSG Board appointed the Committee for Private Education (CPE) to carry out its functions and powers relating to private education under the Private Education Act. All Private Education Institutions (PEIs) are required to comply with the regulations under the Act in order to continue operations.
CPE, in aiming to enhance the confidence of students and their parents in the quality of education in Singapore, has stipulated that all PEIs must sign a PEI-Student Contract with students. The contract lays out the important terms and conditions governing the relationship between the student and Addison Institute. Addison Institute will execute a student contract for every course unless the course is less than 30 days or 50 hours in duration. We will honor all terms and conditions spelt out in all contracts issued and in all communication materials.
There will be a cooling-off period of 7 working days after signing the standard PEI-Student Contract. Students have the right to cancel the contract within 7 working days and be entitled to the full refund of the Total Course Fee and Miscellaneous Fee less any fees that have already been consumed. After the cooling-off period, Addison Institute refund policy will apply.
