EduTrust Scheme

Private Education Act & the Committee for Private Education

Established under the Private Education Act, the Committee for Private Education (CPE) is a statutory board empowered with the legislative power to regulate the private education sector. In addition to its role as the sectorial regulator of private education institutions, the Committee facilitates capability development efforts to uplift standards in the local private education industry.

Under the Private Education Act, the Committee for Private Education will implement two schemes: a mandatory Enhanced Registration Framework (ERF) and a voluntary quality assurance scheme, called EduTrust.

EduTrust Certification Scheme

The EduTrust certification scheme provides a trust mark of quality. Private Education Institutions need to achieve higher and more comprehensive standards in their corporate governance and administration, academic processes, student protection and support services, and financial viability. The EduTrust certificate scheme enables them to differentiate themselves as of a higher quality by achieving certification awards that correspond to their standards.

Under the EduTrust Certification Scheme, all students (both International and Local Students) must enter into a Student Contract with the PEI. TEG International College uses the Standard Student Contract as provided by the CPE.

Samples of the CPE Student Contract from CPE website are as below:

The FPS is available through FPS Insurance Scheme by Lonpac Insurance Berhad and is compulsory for all local and international students.

For Fee Protection under the Insurance Scheme, course fees paid by the students will be insured by Lonpac Insurance Berhad. The FPS Insurance will be purchased within 7 working days from the date of receipt of course fee.
