Guardian Teacher Network

       

Governance Hub

In 2016 we worked with the Guardian Teacher Network to create a series of communications aimed at helping school governors navigate the changing environment, support leadership and assist in implementing decisions that will boost schools. It can be accessed here.

We also produced the publication 'Finding the Formula' in conjunction with The Guardian and and school representatives to explore the changes to the school funding formula and what challenges and opportunities this will present.

Risk guides for the voluntary sector

Zurich Municipal and the Guardian worked together to produce a series of risk guides covering the different issues that are emerging in the voluntary sector.

The guides combine information from Zurich risk experts and examples from the sector on subjects such as regulation, sustainability and people power. The guides were launched at ‘Charity Leaders Live’ events (a panel debate followed by working table discussions) that Zurich host in partnership with the Guardian. The most recent of these events saw risk experts from Zurich talk about how charities can tap into the power of their people.

Improving careers advice in schools

Zurich is an official partner of Young Careers – a new government-backed pilot designed to shape the future of careers advice in England. The initiative aims to strengthen links between business and education to improve careers guidance given in schools, leaving young people inspired and informed around their career opportunities. Zurich is partnering with three school in Waltham Forest, London during 2017 to test a number of different interventions to raise aspirations and - in particular - to open students' eyes to the opportunities available in the insurance industry.'  This builds on the work done in 2016 when we rolled out our financial literacy and insurance module to over 200 students in four schools in East London.


Thought leadership in education

Thought Leadership in Education

In 2016 we continued to discuss the risks and concerns that were highlighted in our 2015 thought leadership reports. We also worked with key customers within the HE sector to discuss the implications of Brexit on the sector, and produced a mini insight report. We will be continuing this discussion in 2017.
