About this event

Every organisation faces risks, and the public sector with its wide range of services is no exception. Most organisations take out some form of insurance to provide protection against the financial consequences of insured risks occurring.

The course is aimed at all staff members within the organisation that have some involvement in the insurance process, whether that be arranging insurance cover, handling insurance claims or providing information to defend insurance claims. It will also be of particular benefit to practitioners who have taken over responsibility for the management of the insurance function without any prior formal insurance qualification.

Please note the earlier start time.

Who should attend?

The workshop is particularly relevant to those staff that are new to insurance or have been working in this area for less than three years. It is also suitable for anyone with management responsibilities for insurance as part of their portfolio, or working in the finance, audit or legal teams or other supporting departments who wish to gain a broad knowledge and understanding of general insurance.

How will I benefit?

By attending the workshop, delegates will gain an understanding of:

  • public sector insurance and key concepts
  • key terms and major risk areas
  • what is underwriting and claims management
  • how to procure insurance contracts
  • overseeing or managing the insurance function.
