Kumon offers individualised maths and English programmes to help children of any age and any ability shine. With over 60 years of experience, Kumon has established itself as the largest provider of supplementary education in the UK.
Today, Kumon has over 600 centres in the UK and Ireland and over 55,000 students enrolled nationwide. They are a globally recognised brand in over 50 countries with 4.3 million students worldwide and an expanding network of franchised Instructors.
The Kumon Method, founded in 1958 in Japan by Toru Kumon, is designed to help any child of any ability to progress to their maximum potential and become an enthusiastic learner. Rather than teaching in the conventional sense, Kumon Instructors develop children by instilling independent learning skills. Each child becomes equipped with the ability to self-learn, helping them to take ownership of their learning and develop the confidence to strive for their goals and aspirations.
Kumon is looking for driven professionals who are passionate about education, children and helping them build a brighter future. With Kumon, you can turn that passion into a reality by running your own Kumon study centre.
As a Kumon franchisee your number one focus will be on developing your students and helping them reach their potential.
However, you will also run all aspects of the business ensuring that prospective parents have a positive customer experience, responding to initial enquiries and booking in diagnostic assessments, as well as managing your assistants and the running of your centre.
This is a full-time business opportunity where you will build and run your own business with the support of a dedicated Kumon Area Manager.
This is dependent on your ability to grow your business and on how scalable your venue is.
However, if you were running an established study centre with a student base of between 100-300 students, you could expect to earn from around £30,000pa to £100,000pa, after royalties and operating costs.
After your one-day Orientation Meeting, you will be invited to meet with your local Regional Manager to discuss and put together your business plan and the vision for your study centre.
Before opening you will be trained in the Kumon Method of Learning (the maths and English programmes) over 11 days at Kumon’s flagship study centre.
After opening you will continue to take part in regular ongoing training alongside other Instructors to deepen your knowledge of the Kumon Method of Learning.
You will receive world-class training and support from the very start of your Kumon journey, including guidance from a dedicated Area Manager who will help you make sound business decisions.
You could be the proud owner of your own study centre in as little as three to six months with an initial franchise fee of just £3,000, one of the lowest levels of investment required in the education franchise sector.
To become a Kumon Instructor, you will need to be educated to degree level or equivalent, as well as demonstrate the desire to help children build their confidence and become independent learners.
As the Instructor of your own Kumon maths and English study centre, you will reap the rewards of making a significant contribution to your community by helping children achieve a brighter future.
Kumon Instructors come from a variety of different backgrounds; from business and finance to education and law.
Many Instructors are Kumon parents who have seen how effective the programme has been with their own children and have decided to join our growing network to help other children reach their potential.
I’ve always wanted a profession where I can make a difference. As a Physiotherapist, my core aim was to help people achieve the best health they could. Kumon’s aim is very similar: helping each child reach his or her potential. If you’re stuck with any aspect of running the business, you can always ask for help – I have an Area Manager who I can turn to for guidance.Dr Ivy Man, Instructor of the Kumon Southampton, Shirley Study Centre
I can organise my hours better, and I have more of a social life. I have really enjoyed it and haven’t looked back once. You hear a lot about education and I’m glad I’m making a difference. When students shine, the satisfaction is great.Chow Chan, Instructor of the Kumon Worcester, East Study Centre
