PayPal Account for Online Course Selling

If you intend to sell your Courses online, i.e. have your course content uploaded and available for anyone to purchase on the platform at any time, you will require a PayPal account so payments made on the course platform can be transferred to your account.

Note: The Grow Together School only accepts payments for Courses that are available for sale online to all users of the platform. Agreements and renumeration between parents and teachers is negotiated separately and these payments are made direct from parents to teachers.

Insurance

Teacher and Training Consultant Insurance

Smart Insurance for teacher and training consultants.

As a teacher or training consultant, you want your insurance to work just as hard as you do. Contractor Cover will put the best possible insurance in place to protect you at a more cost-effective price.

  • Insurance especially for Australian teachers and trainers
  • Expert Australian brokers
  • Quote in seconds and Certificate of Currency in minutes

Professional Indemnity Insurance for Teachers

Professional Indemnity Insurance covers your legal liability for a breach of your professional duty and means legal costs and damages which come out of negligence claims are taken care of. For teachers and training consultants, this type of cover is essential.
 

Personal Accident and Illness Cover for Teachers

If you suddenly found yourself unable to work as a teacher or training consultant, you could quickly find yourself in a situation where you’re unable to meet your financial obligations. For your peace of mind, take out Personal Accident and Illness Cover which will make sure you’re still paid a portion of your income until you recover if you can’t work due to injury or illness.

General Property Cover for Teachers and Training Consultants

Teachers and training consultants are often transporting equipment back and forth in their cars, such as overhead projectors and laptops. Along with it being highly inconvenient if something happens to your equipment, these items are also quite very expensive to replace. Make sure you have General Property Cover in place while will cover you if your equipment is lost or stolen.
 

Public Liability Insurance for Teachers

If you teach from your home or a private space, Public Liability Insurance will protect you from the cost of a claim if anyone is injured. This will offer you peace of mind and means you’re covered in the event of the unexpected.
 

Tax Audit Cover for Teachers

Like any profession, teachers and training consultants could find themselves on the receiving end of a tax audit which brings with it the expense of having to hire a professional to complete the audit on your behalf. Tax Audit Cover means you can be assured that these costs will be covered.

Note: The Grow Together School is not responsible for any insurance or liability and as you are self-employed on the platform, insurance cover is strongly advised. Grow Together School is not affiliated with Contractor Cover and receives no financial incentives.
