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. Discounted rates are available to members of teaching unions.
Alan Boswell Group are the preferred insurance suppliers for all the major teachers unions including NUT, ATL and ASCL. Our specialist teacher’s liability policy brings together the required covers in one simple package and is so competitively priced that there’s now no need to leave yourself without cover.
The process was really easy, but the really pleasing aspect was the communication by telephone prior to purchasing.
We have special schemes in place for members of the main teaching unions. For more details and prices, please select your union below:
Yes: freelance marking, examining and moderating work is covered as standard by the policy.
Yes, you can change your personal details, upgrade the indemnity limit or renew your policy online.
No excess applies to the first claim you make in any year. Subsequent claims in the same year are subject to a £250 excess if made under the Public Liability section and £500 if made under the Professional Indemnity section.
No: the policy only covers you for activities carried out in England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands.
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.
