All roads lead to Premier Sport for former Police Officer...

Premier Education Group is excited to welcome former Police Officer, Simon Gibbons, to the Premier Sport network.

Premier Sport - Simon GibbonsAlong with five other new franchisees, he’s just completed the rigorous induction process at PEG Training Academy and will now launch his franchise in Grimsby, North Lincolnshire.

Simon is a Business Management graduate and for the last 12 years he’s been a Police Officer for the Humberside Constabulary. The geographic area which Simon has been operating within is one of the busiest and most challenging in the UK in terms of crime rates and social economic issues. Simon has witnessed firsthand the negative effect on children’s wellbeing by not having the opportunities to experience regular activity and structured play.

Following Simon’s decision to choose Premier, he commented:
"My experiences in the Police force have been very rewarding, and when combined with my passion for sport, and ambition to run my own successful business, the opportunities offered by taking on a Premier Sport franchise is a perfect fit. I welcome the new challenges that this opportunity will offer especially in terms of trying to make a positive impact on many lives at an early stage of their development".

It is a sign of Simon’s passion to help develop young people through education that he volunteered one day a week at a local school, assisting in the delivery of mathematics to 11-16 year olds. All this was achieved whilst undertaking his challenging role in the Police force.

Simon came along to a Premier Education Group Discovery Day in February 2015 and due to his demanding work shifts, the recruitment process and completion of the business planning stage needed to fit in with Simon’s available time. Simon had additional support with the completion of his business plan as his wife Kerrie is a qualified Accountant.
