Education franchises are about more than tutoring. Find out more about education franchise opportunities and which could be right for you.
Have you considered working in education but you’re not a fan of the rigidity of the school system? Education franchises could be the option for you. From tutoring to nurseries and more, the world of educational franchising is as varied as it is important.
Education is big business. In the UK alone, the education industry generated over £120bn in revenue over the past year. It is also growing and projected to increase by 2.2 per cent every year.
You don’t have to be a schoolteacher or lecturer to work in education. Learning doesn’t start and end at the school gates, and neither should your chance to play a part in this important and thriving industry. If you want to work in education but would prefer to operate from your home or nearby and at times that suit you, an education franchise could be ideal.
Not only will you be providing students with crucial skills, but owning an education franchise will also give you an assured business with an established reputation in the industry. We tell you everything you need to know about education franchises to help you take your next exciting career step.
Education franchises can be relatively cheap to start
When compared to some brick-and-mortar businesses, education franchises have relatively low start-up fees. For some opportunities, you can get started for below £6,000. If you want to become your own boss and don’t have six figures handy to start a fast food franchise, for example, or you want to feel as though you’re making more of an impact with your work, education franchising could be a much more accessible option, while still allowing you to enjoy the benefits of working for yourself and having an established brand behind you.
Tutoring is just one of the options
The first thing you might think about education franchising is that it’s largely about tutoring. While tutoring is an option, it isn’t the only way to get involved in education franchising. From art groups to dance troupes, the opportunities in education franchising go far beyond teaching the standard reading, writing and arithmetic.
Creativity could be key to your new business
Do you consider yourself a patron of the arts? You could get a chance to use your creativity to provide interesting and varied educational opportunities for children. By owning a franchise of The Creation Station, for example, you could inject your love of the arts into a varied and fun business that encourages creativity. If you’ve got rhythm, dance groups like Boogie Beat will get you on your feet running classes and workshops.
You can choose a franchise that matches your interests
Teaching Maths or English isn’t everyone’s area of interest — or expertise. Fortunately, you can pick from a variety of different sectors. Interested in technology and the digital world? Franchises like ComputerXplorers give you the chance to channel your love of tech into a viable business while helping the next generation get to grips with important tools they’ll use every day.
You don’t have to work in a classroom
As we’ve now seen, education doesn’t always have to take place in a school. Education franchises can be run in a variety of locations. You could run your education franchise from the comfort of your own home or across the community, depending on the franchise you choose and your own preferences. You could even work outside, running a variety of activities at holiday clubs like Fun Fest. There’s no one environment for education franchising, and this is why it’s such a versatile and popular business option — it offers opportunities to work wherever you want.
