When you are working for the Local Authority or another employer, it is usual for the employer’s own liability insurance to provide you with appropriate protection. But when you work outside the course of your normal employment then you are potentially exposed to liability claims which might be brought against you personally by pupils, parents or third parties.

Our teachers’ liability insurance scheme has been specially developed to protect the increasing numbers of teachers and lecturers who are self-employed or provide private tuition, lecturing or coaching outside of their main employment. Liability cover is also available for freelance or self-employed music teachers and most types of educational consultants, including those operating limited companies.

Below are discounted rates that are available to members of teaching unions – If you’re not part of a union please click here to purchase your teacher’s insurance or obtain a quote

  • £1 million Public Liability Indemnity limit
  • £1 million Professional Indemnity limit
  • No excess for first claim in any given year

How our customers rate us

The process was really easy, but the really pleasing aspect was the communication by telephone prior to purchasing.

Claims

When it comes to private tuition, parents and students may seek to apportion blame for a failure to reach a desired outcome. To some people, blame equals compensation. Nowadays, rather than accepting any personal responsibility, people are encouraged to search for someone else to blame for their misfortunes.
