The Registration of summer schools for 2018 is now open, the Ministry for Education and Employment has said.
Anyone who intends to offer an educational programme in the form of a summer school/club for children aged between 3 and 16 years, should apply to register their summer school/club as an Educational Establishment with the Directorate for Quality and Standards in Education.
The Ministry advised that the registration will be valid for summer 2018 for the period between 1st June and 30th September.
Those entities which are licensed as a school prior to the start of the summer school, need to provide the Directorate with the necessary information.
Only summer schools/clubs that are registered with the Directorate will be exempt from Value Added Tax on the fees for the services rendered.
Registration forms and the required supporting documentation are to be uploaded online  to the accreditation unit, and applications should be submitted by not later than Tuesday, the 1st of May. Late applications will not be considered.
