*This framework is presently being retendered with an anticipated launch date of 1st February 2021. Please contact Gary Sadler for further details.

CPC members can procure insurance for colleges and/or insurance-related services and products directly from insurers, or via brokers, or a mixture of both using this framework.

College members saved an average of 40.16% on their annual insurance premiums in 2019 (data and feedback received on tenders undertaken in 2019 for both repeat and new users).

Over a typical three or five-year long-term agreement (LTA) the colleges stand to save between £2.2m and £3.7m which can be reinvested into other areas within the institutions, delivering a better educational experience for their students.

The framework provides CPC members with college insurance covers which include but are not limited to:

  • Loss of or damage to any property including IT equipment, money, refrigerated/frozen food, property in transit
  • Works of art insurance
  • Loss due to dishonesty of employees or crime by third parties
  • Loss or damage to contract works
  • Loss or damage caused by terrorism
  • Employers liability
  • Public and products liability
  • Governors and officers liability
  • Libel and slander
  • Professional liability
  • Hirers liability
  • Cyber liability
  • Personal accident
  • Business and student travel
  • Legal expenses and employment practices liability
  • Motor, motor trade, motor sport and occasional business use
  • Damage to plant and engineering plant inspection services, marine and aviation

“To say we were pleased with the outcome was an understatement.”

Tracy Cooney, Procurement & Contracts Officer, Burton & South Derbyshire College

"I recently purchased college insurance through CPC’s framework and I found the documentation excellent. The CPC team are very professional and offer support quickly."
