How to Start a Private Education Institute
If you want to start a private school in Singapore
, you’d have a lot to consider. We have successfully assisted more than 50 private education institutes in establishing themselves here in Singapore, some of which include the likes of multi-international brands specialising in education.
Here are points for consideration:
1. Why Should You Open a Private School in Singapore?
Singapore is ranked 13th in the world by QS Best Student Cities
, indicating that there’s demand by international students to study here. Also, as Singapore promotes lifelong learning and continuous investment in human capabilities
, many Singaporeans are also flocking towards Continuing Education & Training (CET) courses offered by private education institutes in Singapore. With the right strategies, private schools can flourish.
We can assist with strategic planning and help map out a five year journey to your desired goals through the sharing of market insights based on our experience and proprietary information.
2. Legal Requirements for the Registration of a Private Educational Institute
Before you can commence operations, you’d need to register your company with the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority and Enhanced Registration Framework
(ERF), as per the Private Education Act and the Private Education Regulations set by the Committee for Private Education
(CPE). We can guide you through these registration processes
that include the registration of courses and teachers through the Gobusiness licensing system
3. Be Operationally Ready
Proper management is key to your private education institution’s success. This includes hiring the right people and having quality systems and policies in place. EduValue can provide you with the tools and training
that are customised to your needs.
4. Further Quality Certifications to Consider
EduTrust certification – One consideration when choosing an education institute is the school’s reputation. In Singapore, EduTrust
is a Quality Assurance scheme administered by the CPE. EduValue has more than 10 years of experience assisting private education institutes in achieving and maintaining their EduTrust certification through our services – management of QA and compliance functions.
5. Consider Mergers & Acquisition (M&A)
M&A can be a strategic move for foreign educational brands
to immediately enter Singapore’s private education sector and start operating. How this works is that, with proper licences and certification in place, the acquired school or institute is operationally ready for you to start offering your programmes to both the Singapore and international market.
