Work Placement/Work Experience Insurance for 2019

Two separate policies provide work experience/placement cover for students, schools and employers involved in Work Experience and Work Placement activities.

  1. CCI Student Work Experience Personal Accident Policy or Schoolcare Policy (Each diocesan Catholic Schools Authority and Congregational school purchases these policies or equivalent)
  2. QBE (Australia) Insurance Work Experience/Work Placement Public Liability Insurance Policy (CEC NSW purchases this policy).

The Catholic Schools NSW Work Experience/Placement Insurance Summary and Certificate of Currency lists the terms and conditions of insurance cover including activities which are excluded or that require special approval during work placement.

The Vero Certificate of Currency for medical malpractice cover applies until 31 January 2020.

Special approval is required for placements involving animal handling.  Details are included in Work Placement/Experience Involving Animal Handling (Memo Ref: 08/14)

This summary provides only a general overview of available insurance cover; it does not represent legal advice. For precise advice, please consult the relevant CCI or QBE Insurance Policy Documents or contact Gerard Delany, State Co-Ordinator – Vocational Education.
