WORK-BASED LEARNING INSURANCE

Various forms of insurance should be considered in a student work-based learning program. Schools and LEAs often have someone who coordinates insurance needs.


LIABILITY INSURANCE

The NC Department of Public Instruction contracts with an insurance agency each year to provide liability insurance for students in work-based learning. This insurance covers the student if he/she causes personal or property damage while at the worksite.

For more information about this liability insurance, please contact:

STUDENT HEALTH AND ACCIDENT INSURANCE

It is recommended that all students participating in work-based learning be covered by adequate medical and accident insurance.
