They're here so you can feel assured that the cover is right for you. All you need to do is tell us what type of tutoring is involved and we'll build your policy with you. (Tutoring involving manual activities such as carpentry cannot be covered).
There are many scenarios where professional indemnity insurance can apply to private tuition. Negligence, breach of confidence and failure in professional duty to educate, are all covered under this section. If an element of the syllabus is missed or a client is unhappy with a grade, the policy provides support for your legal defence. In addition, we can cover civil liability claims, just ask your adviser. for more information.
It's unlikely, but if, during the course of your tuition you are responsible for someone being injured or damage to their property, public liability cover for tutors would compensate the injured party. A small excess will apply.
Equipment such as laptops can be insured simply by adding an extension to your policy. Not only will they be covered while you're teaching but also when you're away from your usual teaching premises. Please be aware, you should still take reasonable precaution to protect these items i.e. if your laptop is stolen whilst left unattended and unsecured in a public place, your claim will not be valid.
When you need to make a claim, we'll guide you through the process and get your claim settled as quickly as possible.
Professional indemnity insurance, or professional liability insurance for tutors, is cover for legal costs or expenses related to your defence and compensation awarded if your case is lost.
Though it is not a legal requirement there are many reasons why insurance can be a worthwhile investment. Particularly to cover your professional liability as a tutor, if for example you were to miss part of the syllabus and a client were to take legal action against you, your policy could provide cover for legal costs and expenses.
Again, it’s not a legal requirement but can cover your professional and personal liability, as well as the equipment you use in the course of your work as a teacher (i.e. laptops). These may not be covered on your home insurance if they are for business use.
Public liability insurance for home tutors is designed to cover accidental injury to third parties and damage their property, caused by your negligence while tutoring. Though such an incident may seem unlikely, often claims related to public liability can be costly. Insurance will cover your legal defence costs in court, as well as awards you may need to pay to the third party. find out more.
