Schools are Hungry for Nutrition & Health

Premier Transition appointments are literally flying off the shelf and this is increasing month on month, and we predict it will continue to do so as more and more information around the ‘sugary drinks levy’ is drip-fed through to your schools.

In February, 36% more Transition appointments were booked compared to Sport...in March 65% - out of the 172 appointments made in March, 112 were for Transition.

Here is what Time Associates Glenn Hoy thinks...

Being able to approach schools as Premier Education Group, under the Health & Wellbeing banner is having several beneficial effects.

  1. It helps overcome any previous reluctance to meet where the school may have felt their sport provision is adequate – we all know that change is not a high priority for them.
  2. Another scenario is that the school may be aware of the need for Health & Wellbeing programmes but do not have the internal resources or skill set to deliver them but equally do not know how to access external support.
  3. Meetings of this type are being well received and I’ve heard the phrase’ different and more interesting conversations’ being used to describe what now happens at a meeting and that even though a PE Coordinator may have no remit for this he/she is happy to provide an internal referral for the correct person at the school.

Watch the video below to hear franchisee Elliot Anderson talk about his first-hand experience of this.

If you wish to become a Premier Transition licensee, please contact Operations Director Karl Fox to start the process to determine when your business will be ready to offer Health & Wellbeing.

Premier 360 Experience

Cast your minds back a month or so to the brilliant NTE at Dunston Hall, where we debuted our awesome 360 experience. This video was a big hit among franchisees, their AP’s and prospective customers.

This video, along with our branded VR viewers is an excellent tool, providing potential customers with a unique way to learn about the Premier experience and ultimately helping you to sell Premier clubs and classes into new and existing schools.

The video outlines each of the fantastic programmes Premier Education Group has to offer, and explores the areas in which attending children will develop, through curricular and extra-curricular clubs and courses.

The Premier VR Goggles are an excellent gift for existing school and brand new schools, plus the pupils can have a bit of fun with them too... You can access your own branded VR viewers here here!
