Teachers' insurance tailored to your professional needs

Building your teaching or tutor insurance policy

You may need several different types of insurance cover for your teaching. These insurance covers should help you get started.

Public liability insurance covers the cost of claims made against you by members of the public who suffer injury or damage to property as a result of your teaching work. There is a minimum cover of £1m but your employers (schools, college or private business) may request a certain level of cover before hiring you. We offer up to £10m, which can be necessary for public sector contracts.

Professional indemnity insurance
is essential if your teaching profession involves giving advice as well. If your advice is faulty or negligent, you could be held liable for any resulting financial loss suffered by your clients. Simply Business offers professional indemnity cover from £50,000 up to a maximum of £5 million.

Teaching equipment cover If your teaching business owns a lot of equipment, it might be worth adding equipment cover to your teachers' insurance. Simply Business also offers cover on laptops and other electronic equipment.

Details to look out for

  • Make sure you read and understand any exclusions on your policy. Simply Business offers you the chance to read the policy documents for each quote before you buy.
  • If you are an employer, you have a legal responsibility to take out employers’ liability insurance. Failure to do so can result in a fine of up to £2,500 per day.
