Next Steps

A rewarding and fun career that gives you the potential to earn a great income and a wonderful work-life balance.

Not a teacher? No problem!

With lockdown restrictions likely to tighten and relax over the coming months, it is a stark reality that large numbers of people are unsure of what the future holds for them, with many still unable to go back to work.

These uncertain times are also seen by many as an opportunity to launch new ventures, make that career U-turn, retrain in a different industry or just re-evaluate their life-work- family balance.

Lingotot is an established and successful children's language business. They are proud to teach their multi award-winning language classes to thousands of children each and every week.

Lingotot Franchise | children's language businessLingotot first started to franchise in 2011 with the launch of its first pilot units. The company released franchises UK wide in 2012 and now boasts a network of over 50 franchisees which directly employ a further 80 teachers.

The demand for children’s activities continues to grow as many parents and carers don’t have the knowledge and confidence to provide language learning activities at home.

With foreign languages now compulsory in English primary schools and soon to follow in Scotland and Wales, more and more parents will want to give their children a head start.         

The Lingotot Franchise Opportunity:

Until lockdown, classes were always conducted inside the classroom using their fun and interactive methodology, however when schools closed, the lessons quickly moved online.

Learning is through songs, stories, games, drama and play. Classes are run in nurseries, schools and the community, there no large expenses required on setting up dedicated premises.
