Not satisfied with just one franchise?

Premier Education Group is proud of its continued success of developing talent and giving everyone the opportunity to realise their ambitions and to build a future in an industry they love. What Paul Furniss & Steve Hart have achieved over the last 2 years is fantastic. Their growth in the Stoke / Stafford region clearly demonstrates what can be achieved by sheer hard work, enthusiasm, a passion for what they do and of course a proven business model.

The most exciting part for everyone is that this is only just the beginning! I will let Paul Furniss & Steve Hart explain a bit more...

School impact survey – have you forwarded the survey to your schools?

We’re asking more of you to forward the survey link on so we can demonstrate the excellent work you and your team of Act Pro’s are doing in schools. Your schools will also stand a chance of winning an ambassador visit in 2015.

We've already had a fantastic response but so far, only 27% of schools that have completed the survey came as a result of you forwarding the link. The remaining 73% came as a result of us sending the survey link in Monday’s monthly newsletter to schools.

All you need to do is forward this link on to your Head Teachers or PE coordinators to complete - https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/KVH5J6J

For your reference, here’s a link to last week’s article.
