The Private Schools and Institutions department was inaugurated in 2008, consequent to the restructuring of the Ministry of Education and Sports to cater for the vibrant and ever-expanding private investment in education. Since the government of Uganda decision in 1993 to liberalize the education sector, thousands of schools and institutions have been set up by private investors. In the secondary sub-sector, the number of private schools, at about 4000, is more than double the number of government-funded schools.
The Private Schools and Institutions department is charged with the overall coordination, regulation, policy formulation and guidance on all matters regarding these private schools and institutions. It is specifically vested with the powers to address issues and concerns in private primary and secondary schools as well as private technical and vocational education and training institutions.
It is also the responsibility of the department to coordinate, initiate and implement policies and deal with matters pertaining to foreign students in Ugandan schools. The aim in this regard is to establish Uganda as an attractive destination for quality education in the region.
