Ed Hyslop, chief executive of FCL (pictured), says: “We’re looking for like-minded and motivated individuals with the desire to run their own business helping children overcome their personal obstacles in maths and English. Above all else, we’re looking for people who share our passion for working with children and helping them succeed.
“Our business model ensures franchisees get a high percentage of profits as your class grows. Centre managers choose the days and times that suit their venues, as well as the fee structure for their centre. Our set up also offers a great deal of flexibility based on personal circumstances and, therefore, a great work/life balance.
“Beyond the financial rewards, the hard work pays off when parents share the significance of your role in helping their children to reach their full potential.”
The FCL franchise fee starts from £8,000. Initial costs cover training, website set up, marketing and business support, an accelerator launch package worth around £2,000 and exclusive rights to operate an FCL centre and use the FCL brand in your territory.
In addition, the company offers a 100 per cent franchise fee discount in month one of trading one and a 50 per cent discount for a further three months.
Ed adds: “Our maths and English programmes have been created by a team of qualified specialists, with a wealth of experience in the education sector.
“As no two children are alike, we start by assessing every child - irrespective of their age or ability.
“All our franchisees are provided with the tools and training to complete comprehensive diagnostic assessments in both maths and English. By determining a child’s strengths and the areas they need to work on, we then create a personalised learning programme for every child from our extensive range of learning materials.”
