Here is a summary of the topics we covered:

International schools often struggle with providing their students, staff and school organization with quality protection and resources for unforeseen circumstances. Many of these circumstances can hurt students’ educational experiences and the staff’s safety and working environment.

Why Everyone Needs Professional Liability Insurance

When discussing the importance of risk management in professional liability insurance, it’s important to think about risk management procedures. Many educational institutions have complicated policies for handling claims. There are even more risk management policies for students, faculty members and staff. These policies are often written in unclear terms, leaving policyholders and managers responsible for dealing with difficult claims.

For this reason, the importance of professional liability insurance for international schools cannot be overstated. Policyholders and managers can have peace of mind, knowing that their staff is well-equipped with the knowledge and skills required to deal with and effectively manage complex situations. Plus, they know that their school, students, staff and other parties involved are covered if an incident occurs. In some cases, there may be a need for international directors and officers liability insurance, as well as specific policies regarding teachers, researchers and administrative staff. By consulting with a reputable risk management specialist, the benefits of a proper insurance policy can be explored and discussed in detail.
