The Ministry of Education (MoE) reminds the owners/operators/ managers of all educational institutions and those providing educational support services to register the institution with the Education Council in accordance with Section 9 (1) of the Education Act, 2016 and Section 6 of the Education Regulations, 2017.
MoE Chief Officer Ms. Cetonya Cacho also outlines the importance of registering educational institutions. “The registration of educational institutions enables the Ministry to recognise those in adherence to the national education standards, thus ensuring that the nation’s children have access to quality education.”
The process of registration, which continues throughout the year, varies according to the institution’s categorisation.
Educational institutions and those providing support services are further categorised as those providing compulsory education, early childhood care and education, technical and vocational education & training, post-compulsory education, those catering to special educational needs or disabilities, tutoring centres or mobile tutoring services.
