Understanding insurance for teachers and tutors
Protection policies for a wide range of teaching professionals
Whether you are at your students’ premises, those of a third party or your own premises, working with children, students and mature students will expose you to many risks associated with teaching. This is why it is crucial to have financial protection in place for your profession, which is where The Insurance Octopus can help.
Because your students look to you for expertise and care, we can offer Professional Indemnity insurance to private teachers and tutors which would assist them if a claim was brought against you if you were accused of not teaching correctly or it’s argued you gave poor advice. Local education authorities (LEAs) and often private clients will of course look to hold you accountable if the certain results aren’t good enough. This can of course spell trouble for teachers and tutors so. A bespoke tailored teachers policy from The Insurance Octopus gives you peace of mind, you can also be assured that taking a bespoke policy with The Insurance Octopus accommodates all teacher and education trades.
