Claims Advocate

The test of any insurance program is its ability to respond when needed. Willis Towers Watson Claims Team was established to support our service delivery by assisting our clients with the lodgement and processing of claims together with addressing general claims enquiries.

Central to Willis Towers Watson Claims is their proactive claims management which ensures that claims are being managed without unnecessary time taken by the school in personally managing a claim.

Our proven claims performance with independent schools in settling frequent and difficult insured losses was highlighted after a number of schools suffered substantial fire and weather damage losses in recent years.

Risk Management

The following Risk Management services are available as part of the Willis Towers Watson insurance program:

  • Risk Scorecard, a complimentary self-assessment/self-audit exercise intended to help schools evaluate their risk performance and highlight the strengths / weaknesses in a number of different areas.

  • Risk management framework/procedures review and consultation to address more specific needs/risks via our risk management specialist (Adam Berryman).

  • Helpdesk facility for all enquiries in relation to any area of risk including property, liability, workplace safety and security.
