NAFA is widely recognised for its quality education and efficient corporate governance. Following is a list of corporate accolades we have won.

Ministry of Education, Singapore

Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) is a private institution providing publicly-funded diploma programmes in the arts. NAFA also offers publicly-funded music degree programme in collaboration with the Royal College of Music, London (RCM).

The Committee for Private Education (CPE)

The Committee for Private Education (CPE) was appointed by SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) Board in October 2016 to carry out its functions and powers relating to private education under the Private Education Act. The CPE is supported by a team of dedicated staff from SSG to regulate the sector, provide student services, consumer education and facilitate capability development efforts to uplift standards in the local private education industry.

The EduTrust Certification Scheme (EduTrust) is a voluntary quality assurance scheme administered by CPE for PEIs in Singapore. It aims to recognise PEIs that are able to consistently maintain high standards in key areas of management and in the provision of education services.

NAFA was first awarded EduTrust certification in June 2011 and has maintained its certification ever since.

The Commissioner of Charities

NAFA is an approved Institution of a Public Character (IPC) approved by the Commissioner of Charities to receive tax-deductible donations. Donors are able to claim tax relief from their assessable income based on the amount donated, at prevailing deduction rate.

The office of the Commissioner of Charities is under the purview of the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth. IPCs are charities which are able to issue tax deductible receipts for qualifying donations to donors. IPCs are rightfully held to a higher standard, both in terms of regulatory compliance as well as governance.
