Turtle Tots are a successful and expanding Children's Swimming School. They have been licensing their programme since 2011 and offer people the opportunity to become licencees and launch a Turtle Tots Business where they live.
Having a swimming teacher qualification is a bonus, but it’s not a necessity as Turtle Tots help you become as qualified as possible through the Swimming Teachers' Association (STA) or the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA).
You will also receive world-class Turtle Tots training. So don’t let that stop you getting in touch. Its more important that you are friendly, positive and love babies and children.
Many of Turtle Tots licensees have young children themselves, and they always treat their customers as they would want to be treated themselves – it’s not rocket science, but it leads to lots of happy customers who recommend Turtle Tots to their friends, family and colleagues.
In your first year you can reasonably expect to earn £25,000+ and be spending just 5-7 hours a week in the pool. However with hard work, motivation and their support, it's possible to earn far more and they will discuss your vision for your Turtle Tots Business when you come to meet them.
Of course running your own business has huge benefits too. First and foremost there’s no limit to your success. There’s a famous quote: “The harder you try the luckier you get.” That’s certainly true when you run a Turtle Tots Swimming School.
You will need to spend your first year completely immersed in your business to ensure it’s launched successfully and you’re on the right path from day one.
You will have an enormous amount of fun working alongside a team of like-minded and supportive licensees. You can dictate your own hours (many licensees catch up on administration once their children are in bed or at school) and of course, teaching swimming is officially the best job in the world!
The initial licence fee starts at £13,000 + VAT. Turtle Tots can even help you with investment: every licensee has been able to obtain a business loan and Turtle Tots help prepare a realistic and professional business plan to achieve this.
Turtle Tots hand pick each licensee to ensure they are capable of running a successful business. If running a business was easy then everyone would do it – so they look for licensees who possess the following qualities:
