NEW comprehensive Planning Framework video, produced by NCTDO Andy Heald

Based on feedback from across the network, National Coach Training Development Officer (NCTDO), Andy Heald and the marketing team have created a new and more comprehensive video to support you with the BMS Planning Framework.

The aim of the video is to help you orientate the BMS and take you through the process of creating medium and short term plans. As well as this, the video will show you how a school views the Planning Framework via the Schools Portal.

FREE Performing Arts support day rejuvenates licensee and staff – book yours now!

In last week’s newsletter we spoke to Kate Maguire, Performing Arts Business Manager in Rugby (Warwickshire) following a FREE support day from our Creative Director, Frankie Worthington. This week we grabbed a word with the business owner, Matt Ewer following the support day -

”Frankie came to visit us following a period in which our Premier Performing Arts business had stood still. I was fully engaged in Premier Sport and Kate (my PPA business manager) wasn’t getting the support she required from me to make the business a success.

Following our day with Frankie, we both have a renewed sense of motivation and appetite for the Premier Performing Arts business.   Activity levels and sales are up as a result of some of the strategies we discussed and more importantly she’s given us the impetus to step out of the rut we found ourselves in.
