Slashing the price for students

Slashing the price for students

To celebrate the start of the new college year the British Grooms Association (BGA), are delighted to give students a helping hand by offering a marvellous discount on both the Standard and Student membership options.

From 22 October until 1 November Student membership will be slashed to just £39.50, giving a saving of £11.80. Included in the annual Student membership is SEIB Standard Personal Accident Insurance, essential for all equine students undertaking yard duties at college or student work placements.  

Personal accident insurance protects students if they are not eligible for an insurance payment due to negligence.  Even if there is no fault proved the student will still be entitled to payment under the BGA personal accident scheme and in addition any other personal accident insurance that they have in place.

Executive Director of the BGA, Lucy Katan says, “Many students are working uninsured as grooms at the weekends and on work placements. Most Personal Accident Insurance policies only cover for recreational purposes, hence when a student is working they may think that they are covered, when in fact they are not. We can not recommend enough the importance of an insurance policy that protects students whilst they are at work which is why we are offering discounted affordable insurance.”

In addition the BGA have also cut the Standard membership to the crazy price of just £9.50, saving £10.00. As part of both the Student and Standard membership packages members have access to a free legal helpline, a members only section of the website offering lots of practical employment and career advice, quarterly membership magazines, access to the Equine Skills CV and the free SPILLERS Nutritional Certificate.
