Franchise opportunities educating children

Kumon is one of the market leading providers of after-school maths and English classes; providing supplementary education to over 60,000 children throughout the UK and Ireland. Working with Kumon is a hands-on role where you are responsible for all areas of the business including the instruction of the students. Kumon encourages children to develop a daily study habit with children attending the study centre twice a week, which usually takes place in low cost rented space such as churches, schools and community centres.
During the start-up period we would be expecting a new franchisee to be investing between £3,000 and £5,000 in their new business. Kumon franchisees are provided with all teaching material and thorough training in the delivery of the Kumon method. You will also receive substantial marketing support and professional development to help you grow and maintain your student numbers.

Instructs & inspire children

As a Kumon Instructor running your own after-school maths and English study centre, you would be part of a global community of franchisees stretching across 46 countries, including Japan, USA, and Australia. Our Instructors come from all different walks of life: from teachers and qualified tutors, to dedicated parents and successful business people.  Many of our Instructors had never considered becoming a franchisee before they encountered Kumon.  But what they all have in common is that they are responsible individuals, with a passion for education and a desire to help children grow and develop.
A Kumon Instructor’s key tasks:

  • Educating the children – setting work, motivating the students, providing study projections, maintaining study records and helping them realise their potential
  • Communicating Kumon values to potential and existing parents – conducting thorough enrolments, holding communication classes and being aware of parental involvement in the Kumon method
  • Marketing your study centre – promoting your centre and the service that Kumon offers in your local area
  • Managing your study centre – the day-to-day running of a business such as ordering stock and managing staff


What is the Kumon Method?

Toru Kumon developed the Kumon method of learning in Japan, in 1954. He found that children who learned, without being limited by the preconceptions of the teacher, by being given work that was at the ‘just right’ level for them, developed faster and further. By not limiting the potential of students, he was able to help children soar in their educational lives. More importantly, by giving these children long-term skills for learning, they succeeded in their adult lives as well.

Where is Kumon today?

There are currently over four million students studying the Kumon Method, and as each child goes through our programme, we ourselves continue to learn; ensuring that the method is always improving and growing with the children studying it.

Becoming a Kumon Instructor

At Kumon what we care about most is the children; we are looking for people who share our commitment to children’s learning. We are not looking to open short-term study centres, so you must be certain that you are looking for a long-term venture and have a desire to help as many children as possible achieve their potential.
We want to ensure you have all the information you need to make an informed choice about whether to take on a Kumon franchise so we offer a free, no obligation, Information Session. This is a presentation about Kumon: who we are, what we want to achieve and how we see ourselves achieving this. It is the initial step in assessing whether a Kumon franchise is the right option for you.
As an interested applicant, you will have the opportunity to have a one-to-one discussion with a member of our Franchise Recruitment Team to clarify any issues before progressing your application. Also at this time we will be talking through locations and potential venues for your study centre.
The security of the children is paramount and therefore our application process requires us to carry out a significant number of background checks including enhanced disclosure checks prior to being accepted on our training programmes. Any offer of further training or a franchise licence is subject to the relevant “clearance” on any of these checks.
