Peter Bulteel is the latest in a long line of primary and secondary school teachers to join the Premier family over the past few years.

Peter enjoyed a successful career in the private and state education sector as a PE teacher. For the last 15 years, Peter has taught at the independent boarding school Leighton Park School in Reading. His last role was Head of Boy’s Games and taught Year 7 to Year 13. Prior to this role, Peter worked in a number of secondary school across Kent. His teaching career followed graduation from University College of St Mark & St John Plymouth with a BA (Hons) in Recreation and Community Studies with physical recreation programmes, plus a PGCE in secondary Physical Education.

A change in personal circumstances at the start of this year provided Peter with the perfect opportunity to take stock, reflect and positively seek a new direction for his career. It was through a specialised recruitment company that Peter was first introduced to Premier Education Group and the business opportunities that exist. The thought of running his own business appealed to Peter, even more so that it was within in the education sector using his knowledge and passion to maximum effect.

At the Discovery Day in February, Peter got to understand the benefits of owning a franchise and how the Premier business model stands out and helps win business. The thought of compiling a business was daunting to Peter as he had no experience of this process. With the support of Premier, plus an appointed external business plan writing company as part of the recruitment process, he got to grips with the principles and the plan. The result being that the business plan provided the road map for the next two years and helped Peter visualise the transition from employed status to successfully running his own business. Peter comments on his decision to invest in a Premier Sport franchise: "As a secondary school PE teacher I very much value the need for primary pupils to learn and grasp the basics from an early age, which gives them the basis to begin an active lifestyle for years to come. Essentially, I very much believe there is a sport out there for everyone."

Peter still has time outside working hours to play rugby on a regular basis and can often be found on the golf course. His long term aim is spend even more time playing golf once his business is up and running.Peter has recently moved to Faversham, Kent, which is within striking distance of his Dover franchise territory. Peter is well aware that he will benefit from the established Premier franchisees in the surrounding area and is looking forward to working with his fellow franchisees to continue the success already achieved across the county.

Premier Education Group is delighted to welcome Peter who brings a wealth of PE and teaching experience to the business and will enable him to get off to a flying start towards building a long lasting legacy in Kent.
