July 2019 - Kaplan Higher Education Academy and Kaplan Higher Education
Institute have achieved renewal of the 4-year EduTrust Certification, conferred
by the Committee for Private Education (CPE), which is part of SkillsFuture
Certification is a quality assurance scheme awarded to Private Education
Institutions (PEIs), who have demonstrated an excellent level of performance in
managing their institutions and providing high quality education standards and
welfare for their students. PEIs are assessed across seven criteria, which
include the institution's management commitment and responsibilities, student
protection and support services, academic processes and student assessment, and
achievement of student and graduate outcomes.
Professor Rhys Johnson, Chief Operating Officer and Provost at Kaplan in
Singapore expresses, "We are delighted to
receive the renewal of our EduTrust Certification offering students, parents
and partners the assurance of our commitment to providing quality education. As
one of the leading private education providers, we will continue to work
closely with our university and industry partners to help our students and graduates
achieve their educational and career goals through lifelong learning
EduTrust Certification follows accreditations received from the Chinese Service
Center of Scholarly Exchange (CSCSE), an affiliation to the Ministry of
Education of the People's Republic of China. All degree programmes delivered by
Kaplan in Singapore, offered by Murdoch University, Northumbria University, Royal
Holloway University of London, University College Dublin, University of Essex
and University of Portsmouth, are recognised by the CSCSE providing graduates
more employment opportunities in China (Degrees awarded through Kaplan Higher
Education Academy from July 2011 and Kaplan Higher Education Institute from
March 2016 are covered).
Professor Johnson added, "We will
continue to partner with renowned universities to give students the opportunity
to select from pathway options to progress academically and attain their
preferred qualifications. This accreditation will benefit our students and
alumni in equipping them with the key skills needed to remain highly employable."
