Franchising - a word from our Chief Executive

Our Chief Executive, Ed Hyslop, talks about the support available to new franchisees and how we help you get going. We also hear from two successful Centre Managers (Simon Deacon, North Leeds and Rachel Holdom, Burnham-on-Sea) describing their experiences and how First Class Learning differs from the competition.

Why I chose FCL

Raxita Kantaria (St Johns Wood) talks about the life choice she made and the improvements to her work life balance when she left a job in the City to become a First Class Learning Centre Manager. Her lifestyle benefited as she became her own boss and put her family first – running a First Class Learning tuition centre was an ideal fit.

Why is First Class Learning for you?

We hear from Polly Warren (Brighton) who illustrates the benefits of the franchise world as an ex-teacher – being part of a larger organisation that has established branding, marketing and business model while receiving guidance and encouragement from the many other experienced Centre Managers in our network.
