Invitation to our focus group on 10th April

Published Tuesday 20th, March 2018

The team behind Primary Times Devon, Dorset and Cornwall is delighted to announce an exciting FREE new resource for teachers and educators! Teachout has been created with you in mind: it is a free one-stop resource for teachers and organisers of educational group trips in the South West. The site features a huge range of attractions, residentials and transport options, along with ideas to provide inspiration and practical guidance to help you plan your trip.

Focus group invitation

If you’re responsible for booking educational visits and you’re based in Cornwall, Devon or Dorset, we would like to invite you to take part in a fun and informal focus group, to find out about your experiences and the challenges you face when booking a group trip.

Whether you are a teacher or preschool leader; an enabler for children with SEND needs or a home educator; a scouts or guiding group, or indeed any organisation or individual who needs to book an educational group trip – we would love to hear from you!

We understand how precious your time is, so we would like to show our thanks and appreciation by providing a 2 course lunch as well as offering either afternoon tea and use of the hotel’s lovely (heated) outdoor pool or a voucher towards a spa treatment, which you can book at a time/date to suit you. We will also reimburse any reasonable travel expenses.
