Unlocking a future proof pension for your school

The increase in the employer contribution to the Teachers' Pension Scheme (TPS) in September 2019 has seen a sizeable number of independent sector school employers withdraw from the scheme. Since 2020 Covid-19 has exacerbated the situation.

At Corinthian Benefits we're committed to helping you address these challenges whilst continuing to deliver your strategic objectives.

Access to high
quality pensions for all

We believe it is important that all schools should be able to access high quality pension provisions for staff. We have worked with many schools that have taken on this challenge and found solutions that work for them and their staff.

We do this by taking the time to understand your requirements. This may be maintaining membership of TPS or finding a solution that works for you outside of the scheme for your teachers and support staff.

Our Process

1 Initial meeting with key stakeholders (Head Teacher, School Bursar) to understand your requirements and agree on a way forward
2 We present the new arrangements through group presentations
3 A consultation with each individual member of staff to discuss options
4 We do everything to implement the new arrangements
5 Ongoing: We manage the new plans and we are there for any queries you and your staff may have
How do we ensure a successful consultation?

A business review for your school

Working in partnership with your school we will conduct a business review to explore opportunities for change and explore how these updates could work for your school.

A detailed Proposal

We offer  Finance Focus Sessions in advance of a formal consultation for teaching staff to promote a greater understanding of the benefits provided by the TPS and how DC pensions work in practice.

Consultations for all

We offer group presentations to your teaching and support staff and one-to-one consultations to explore individual needs. We are able to assist in providing financial education for your team, including personal financial management, budgeting, and investing.

Ongoing support for all

We offer ongoing support for your school and staff needs with regular reviews to adjust and improve benefits and services. This includes onboarding new members of staff to ensure they understand and appreciate all their benefits, along with the options and opportunities available to them.

For Now. For the Future.

We are an award-winning pensions and benefits consultant. We help schools, like yours, create a more secure, satisfying and successful present and future for your teachers and for your whole school community.

We act as an extension of your school, listening to your individual needs and simplifying the language and complexity of pensions and benefits. We offer clear, informed advice and build a benefits and pension package that suits your teachers' needs.

We’ll meet you in person. This allows our expert team to better understand your school and what you are trying to achieve. We won’t take up much of your time, and we will come back with a tailored plan that is in line with your objectives.
