The Willis Towers Watson Service Team is committed to providing optimal service levels, from insurance placements to claims handling and risk management. The team will provide local personalised service for all aspects of your insurance and risk management requirements.

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

A self-assessment tool to evaluate risk management activities of your school in six key areas which are formal risk management framework, liability, property, workplace health and safety, workers compensation and cyber security. As part of the self-assessment evaluation, the Risk Scorecard will also provide the following:

  • Risk score results summary and breakdown for each key area – helps you identify strengths and weaknesses, and prioritise where risk management attention is needed most.
  • Risk score benchmark for certain key areas against other independent schools and all results will be kept strictly confidential.
