NASBM guidance for improving school financial outcomes
In the 2013-14 academic year 55 percent of teachers in service at any time during the year had at least one period of sickness absence. For those teachers taking sickness absence the average number of days lost was 7.9.*
Following the release of NASBM’s guidance for improving school financial outcomes, it is important to remember the significance of acquiring appropriate staff absence insurance, and the process in which it is procured.
Efficiency in schools
The report focused on efficiency within schools, aspects such as eliminating waste, implementing better time management and staff training, small changes can result in significant improvements in efficiency.
An area in which schools often spend a lot of time and effort is the procurement of staff absence insurance. Often it can be a difficult task to decide what insurance is best for your school, comparing different policies across the market takes up valuable time and resources which schools could better put to use.
It is vitally important that schools select a policy that suits their specific needs and requirements as a poorly chosen policy could cost the school thousands over the course of a year.

The Education Broker can save schools time and effort when searching for staff absence insurance with a unique service that offers four different policies from various different insurers with just one form.
