Features & benefits of employing an Apprentice

Premier Sport and Babcock are offering franchisees the chance to gain nationally recognised qualifications for their apprentices:

Why should your employees be qualified?

“Any adult supporting teachers in a physical education or school sport capacity should be qualified to a Level 2 National Governing Body (NGB) Award and working towards a Level 3 Certificate in Supporting the Delivery of Physical Education and School Sport or equivalent.” afPE, March 2013**

**The expectation is that this requirement will be complied by 2015.

Upselling - know your product, know your customer!

Last week, Operations Director, Danny Melling went shopping for a new family car. He needed a reliable car as Danny and his wife are expecting their third child any day soon. The car needs to be big enough to fit three young children (and the luggage that goes with them i.e. prams etc) and two dogs for when they travel.

Danny’s main criteria is that the car needs to have good safety features and cost effective, whilst his wife’s additional criteria is to have a good driving position and be easy to drive!

Premier Sport quick facts

  • The top 10 performing franchisees receive, on average, £4,400 MORE per school, per year than the bottom 10 franchisees.
  • On average, the bottom 10 performing franchisees work with 14 schools. If they could apply the principles from the above article and up-sell into existing schools using Inspire products, these franchisees would increase turnover by £61,600.
  • 100% of the top 10 franchisees don’t DELIVER in their business, whereas 60% of the bottom 10% do. This suggests the bottom 10 don’t have TIME to sell and maybe that’s why SO FAR this academic year the top 10 turnover is £240k MORE than someone in the bottom 10 (3 yrs old and above).
