When you provide professional advice, it’s important to ensure you have the right insurance protection in place to guard against the risk of things going wrong. That’s why we provide education consultant insurance, which is designed to protect educational consultants and inspectors should, for example, they face a claim for failing in their duty to educate because they missed part of a syllabus, or find themselves accused of breaking copyright restrictions with their course materials.
We have developed a range of flexible policies so that you can design a policy specifically to suit your educational consultancy business.
