Students Invited to Participate in a Questionnaire to Inform Changes to Private Training Institutions Regulations

  • Advanced Education, Skills and Labour

March 4, 2020

The Provincial Government is seeking input from students in response to proposed changes to Private Training Institutions Regulations. An online questionnaire is open to current students at private training institutions in Newfoundland and Labrador at engageNL.

The regulations, which were last substantively updated in 1999, outline the requirements of private training institutions in areas such as registration processes, instructor qualifications, student contracts, tuition fees, student refunds, and program advertising guidelines.

As part of the current review, students are invited to provide feedback on their regulatory concerns and submit ideas. The deadline to complete the questionnaire is March 25, 2020.

Quote
“The private training industry has evolved over the past two decades and many of the regulations are outdated. Our government is committed to protecting students and ensuring they enjoy a quality educational experience. Their input will help us identify the most effective and appropriate enhancements to the Private Training Institutions Regulations.”
Honourable Christopher Mitchelmore‎
Minister of Advanced Education, Skills and Labour
