Welcome to the latest #morethansport News Update.

With spring is in the air, I thought I would share with you what key developments are upcoming here at the Premier Education Group. We are in the final stages of development before we launch our new recruitment website. The website will enable us to share even more exciting information with you including videos, case studies and testimonials; making sure you are kept right up to date with the Premier business opportunities. In conjunction with our new website, we will be enhancing our social media presence. Watch this space for further news!

Our next franchisee induction course takes place at Easter; with just a month to go before our next group of Premier franchisees take control and embark on their new career. We are busy completing the recruitment process and finalising their launch campaign. I can’t wait to introduce our new starters to you as they come from a variety of interesting backgrounds, all great people with a shared passion which is to run a successful business by getting children active.

Kind Regards,

Phil Gaffer

Suffolk’s ‘fittest’ family?

Three children from Hollesley Primary School Suffolk have become the first children in the county to walk over 100 miles each, as part of The Golden Mile health and activity initiative at their school...and they are all part of the same family!

Sam Williams (age 10) Summa Williams (age 7) and Sacha Williams (age 5) have walked 168,124 and 139 miles respectively since November last year, around the schools’ Golden Mile Track. Every day, the three siblings will clock up Golden Miles before and after school.

Gold medal winning advice for London’s young swimmers

Olympic gold medallist Duncan Goodhew MBE will be on hand to give some gold medal winning advice to London’s primary school children on Monday 9th March 2015. Duncan will be visiting St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School in Highgate in the morning before a group of lucky competition winners from St Joseph’s will take to the pool at Archway Leisure Centre receiving once-in-a-lifetime advice from the gold medal winning swimmer.

The Olympian, who won the 100 metre breaststroke at the 1980 Olympic Games, is an ambassador for Premier Sport, the UK’s leading provider of physical education and sports coaching services to schools, whose mission is to inspire young people through PE and sport.

Much more than just a coach

Last year, we changed the terminology for our deliverers from Coach to Activity Professional and nearly one year on we again share the reasoning behind it.

Why? There are just five reasons why your Activity Professionals offer so much more than your competitors coaches.

  1. ROLE - The role of the Activity Professional is not just coaching, Activity Professionals have skills to facilitate, teach, play, work and mentor.
  2. LANDSCAPE - The terminology is consistent with that used by Compass and the Children's Activity Professional Register (CAPRE). These roles and responsibilities are now being championed on a national level with role descriptors and appropriate CPD having been mapped out across the industry.

Department for Education keen to talk...

We’re now at the halfway stage of the research pilot which we’re undertaking with the ukactive Research Institute and the Universities of Greenwich and Aberystwyth. The interim findings have been very interesting and positive, so much so the DfE now want to sit with us to discuss, the project, the impact and the potential. We’ve invested £24,000 in the project, which we believe will play a key role in future developments, which will influence not only our own strategies but that of government too.

CEO David Batch will be meeting with senior representative of the Department for Education in March. The pilot findings will be published at a launch event to key stakeholders including the DfE, DoH, Public Health England plus many more in the Autumn.

Premier Sport goes national through key media partner

This year will be no different to previous years as we continue to strengthen our relationship with key national press partners, like The Times. Not only will the brand grow even stronger nationally, this will inevitably increase exposure on a localised level as we drive readers to book onto your courses.

Here is an advert that featured in The Times last weekend.
