Frequently Asked Questions

We get asked hundreds of questions every day so here are some of the most common ones. If you have and questions that are not covered below then please contact us for more information.

Q: Do I need previous coaching experience or experience running my own Premier business?

No, all you need is your drive and passion for getting children active and to inspire them through physical activity including sport and dance. As part of the induction training course you will participate in accredited qualifications which will enable you to operate and deliver sessions in schools. Predominately, it will be your team of trained and qualified Activity Professionals delivering on your behalf.

Q: Can you help me source finance for the business?
Yes. We have long and established relationships with the franchise teams at many main high street banks. In light of our successful trading history and being a full member of the British Franchise Association (bfa) you will have access to preferential bank finance packages. Typically, the bank will lend you up to 60% of your overall working capital requirement.
Q: When will I start to generate income?

Your business plan will ensure you are able to draw a regular income, if required, from day one.

Q: Do you help me prepare business plans and financial forecasts?

Yes. A major part of the recruitment process is the completion of your 24 month business plan. You will receive support and guidance from us to help you complete your business plan and financial forecasts.
