CPC members can buy insurance for colleges and/or insurance-related services/products directly from insurers, via brokers or a mixture of both using this college insurance cover framework.
College members saved an average of 40.16% on their annual insurance premiums in 2019 (data and feedback received on college insurance tenders undertaken in 2019 for both repeat and new users).
The framework provides CPC members with college insurance covers which include but are not limited to:
“To say we were pleased with the outcome was an understatement.”

Members buying insurance for colleges must undertake a further competition to select a provider considering your own college insurance requirements. Please read the user guide for full details, guidance and template documentation.
Many college insurance renewal dates are in August, so we would typically recommend starting the college insurance tender process as early as March or April. This will allow you and the framework providers plenty of time to get the very best from your tender processes.

Deborah Anderson-Dixon, Finance Manager at Sir William Romney's School

As a reaction to the Covid 19 pandemic, many FE institutions extended their long-term insurance agreements, which has led to a large number of tenders this year, most of which we believe have now concluded. Graham Peck at our insurance specialist partners Risk2Value has provided us with some insight into the insurance market and what makes our framework different to other potential routes.
CPC are delighted to announce the launch of a brand-new insurance framework for colleges.
