Research Project and Community Engagement“PAG were really professional throughout the entire project. As the scope of our project had to be reviewed and adapted due to Covid-19 restrictions, the team were very adaptable and developed a workable solution to enable us to continue and complete the research. We had regular and sustained communication with PAG who were always prompt to answer any questions and quick to action any work discussed. The final piece of research has been well received by our organisation. We are hopeful that the recommendations provided to us in the report will be embedded not only in our work programme but across Strategy and Policy more widely. It has been a pleasure working with PAG and I would highly recommend them for their professionalism, easy manner, work ethic and high quality research.”

"Calderdale Council commissioned Premier Advisory Group in 2018 to carry out a Childcare Sufficiency Assessment parents’ survey. Their approach was professional, we were regularly updated and they listened carefully to our requirements as the project progressed. Their final report contributed to planning for the sufficiency of childcare in Calderdale, and in particular the consultation reported back parents’ and carers’ views on the delivery, process and impact of the 30 hour childcare offer since its inception in 2017."

"PAG supported the Swanland Education Trust in 2018 by conducting ICFP analysis on the schools in our Trust and enabling our MDIF grant to be released. A range of measures were taken into account and this opened discussion on how to use even more resources effectively and efficiently in the SET schools. The findings from the ICFP analysis helped SET in collaborative decision making, the development of the Trust and forward planning. At all stages of the process, the PAG team were supportive and allowed the pace of work to be bespoke to our situation. This resulted in a stress free process from start to finish."

“Premier Advisory’s services were recommended to us by a multi-academy trust for whom who they had worked with previously on a similar piece of work. From our initial discussions until the present day PAG staff have been a valuable source of information, expertise and support. PAG’s initial work was to work with the school on an application to open a new SEND school in RBKC via a local authority competition. This included a concurrent application to become an academy sponsor. Following the success of our free school application, PAG has worked with us on the formation of our new multi-academy trust which will include the new school and a local partner school. PAG has project managed the entire process, helping us to overcome a number of risks and challenges along the way.”
