Some coaching companies take on freelance coaches and pass work onto them. At Premier Education, we employ you directly and you receive all the security and training which comes with that.
Premier Education is a national franchise. That means that, whilst we are a national company, we operate in local areas, each run by a different franchisee. We have over 160 local territories, and between them we work with over 2,500 primary schools. We are establishing new areas all the time, so if we are not operating near you right now, keep an eye out for us!
For Premier Education coaches, working hours can vary depending on your availability and the courses we are running. Our sessions can be held before, during and after school, as well as during school holidays, so there is potential for a lot of weekly hours to be available. We offer a lot of flexibility in working patterns, which you can discuss with your manager.
Most of your time will be taken up delivering our activity sessions to primary school children. The sessions themselves are developed by you (full training is given, of course) which gives you full control over your own coaching style. Coaching is a very sociable job, so there’s time spent every day interacting with parents and teachers. You will also set time aside for ongoing training and development, which is arranged with your manager.
To join the Premier Education family, you don’t need any specific qualifications. That’s because our sister company, TrainWithPremier.com, is able to get you qualified and work-ready from any stage.Before you actually start delivering in schools, you will need to be over 18 with a Level 2 coaching qualification, a first aid certificate and a successful DBS check. We pride ourselves on our quality coaches, so we will always make sure you’re ready to coach before you start.
