For Parents / Students

To ensure the provision of quality education in the ICT region, it is essential to adhere to the minimum standards laid out by the Authority. This includes determining the appropriate fees to be charged by PE1s, which should be commensurate with the academic quality of the institution and the on-campus educational services and facilities available to the students. Additionally, it is important to address academic concerns and complaints for redress in accordance with the established policy.

For Teaching Professionals

Ensure that qualified and professional teachers are provided to impart education in a private setup and guarantee favorable conditions for teachers' services. PEIRA is the sole regulatory authority that works towards the Continuous Professional Development of Teachers in the private sector by promoting teaching innovations. This is because we firmly believe that a teacher's role is fundamental in the grooming of a student. Only a well-conversant and trained teacher can ensure student learning outcomes (SLOs).
