Playforce, the UK’s leader in the design and creation of innovative, curriculum-linked play environments for children, is looking for primary schools to join its Partner programme.

Children play a vital part in the development of innovative new play products and resources.  Through the Playforce Partner programme, primary schools can participate in a wide range of interesting and fun activities including market research meetings, product testing and reviews, focus groups and photoshoots with rewards for participation.

To become a Playforce Partner, schools must be rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted (or be able to demonstrate that they are working towards this) and should be willing to take part in at least three activities by the end of July 2014.

A 15 per cent discount at Playforce Shop is offered to all Partners taking part in a Partner programme activity in recognition of their time and efforts, with additional free products and vouchers available for individual tasks.

Ben Wyatt, Product Design Manager at Playforce says: “Working closely with children and schools provides us with invaluable insight and is hugely important in helping us develop the play products and resources of the future.”
