COMMITTEE FOR PRIVATE EDUCATION
The Committee for Private Education, a statutory board that regulates the private education sector in Singapore, requires that we collect a completed and signed Student Contract for every student registered at DCIS.
The Private Education Act (September 2009), administered by the Committee for Private Education (CPE) was established in Singapore to regulate the private education sector. Under the act, schools are referred to as Private Education Institutions (PEIs). All PEIs must comply with all Private Education Act regulations. DCIS is registered as a Private Education Institute by the Committee for Private Education.
Please visit the Committee for Private Education’s website at www.cpe.gov.sg for further details on the Private Education Act and the Committee for Private Education certification scheme.
The Student Contract is a legal document that protects and assures the rights and conditions of the Student whilst enrolled at a Private Education Institution (PEI), in this case, Dover Court International School.
It is a legal requirement that all Students must enter into the Student Contract. DCIS executes a DCIS Student Contract for every Student. This contract is a critical document; therefore, it is essential that it be completely understood by the Student (Parents/Guardian where the student is younger than 18 years of age). DCIS signs a Student Contract (each contract will have a unique number) with the Student after a place has been offered to the student, and that place has been accepted by the Student (Parents/Guardian where the student is younger than 18 years of age).
