So, you want to become an education franchisee, but you are unsure how to go about it?
Becoming an education franchisee is not as complicated as you would think. However, choosing the right franchise requires you to consider many possibilities and aspects you want to achieve.
This article will provide the know-how and a list of questions for you to consider before you embark on an exciting journey as both a business person and an education advocate. Let us begin!
1. Be a part of a franchise that consistently wins industry awards!
Firstly, you want to become a franchisee to a renowned brand that is backed by industry recognition and trusted experience.
Look for brands that have won education awards, such as the BrandLaureate Award for Best Brand in Preschool Education and Best Education Program, to determine whether they have a high quality education programme endorsed by industry experts.
You can also look for business awards, such as the SME Brand Excellence Award for the Best Global Franchise Model. Choose an education brand that is proven to have more than 200 operating branches, or one that has set its eyes on expanding globally – overall, an established and recognised brand!
2. Invest in technology-led education—it is a stable investment!
Education is a necessity to the masses, regardless of background and economic status. Due to the growing population and income worldwide, parents are relentlessly seeking quality education for their children.
The longevity of your business is important, and lucky for you, the education industry will not cease due to its significance to society, especially when there is a new, proven market available.
Technology-integrated education is part of the ‘sunrise industry’ and an increasingly important trade, since children today are more digitally engaged. You can leverage on this growing market by investing in an education system that keeps up with technological shifts. But do not fret—technology is not to replace teachers, but to empower both teachers and learners in the classroom.
Look for a franchisor that is forward-thinking and adapts to changes so your investment is worthwhile. Investing in technology-led education is the smartest and easiest approach towards sustainable profitability and return of investment (ROI).
3. Expect support from your franchisor!
Once your education business takes off, you will be busy handling its operations, teachers, students and parents. You will need to find a way to offload responsibilities from your shoulders. This is when your franchisor comes in to assist you! Here are some questions for you to decide on the best choice:
Which franchise can provide support for your education business’ day-to-day operations and provide training for your teachers?
Which franchisor will assist you with branding and marketing support?
Which franchisor is able to assist you on content and syllabus creation?
You do not want to break a sweat creating syllabuses and teaching materials, or painstakingly conducting your own advertising and training sessions. Choose a franchisor that can provide you with a well-established education programme.
Besides that, look for franchisors that offer in-house resources, such as research and advertising support. You should be able to seek support from your franchisor when needed, so you can focus on your preschool operations and growth at ease.
4. Become a franchisee with a brand that shares the same objectives as you!
When you are an education business franchisee, your main goals are students’ success in socio-academic competency and parents’ satisfaction with their child’s development. How do you achieve these goals?
The best tip is to choose a brand with a strong education programme that incorporates technology and media to aid teaching sessions, and is designed to prepare children with 21st Century learning skills.
Apart from that, your franchisor’s missions and visions should also align with yours, so both parties are on the same page regarding the syllabuses offered at your centre, the learning environment for your students, and the ethos you want to display to your community.
By the way, did you know that there is only one education franchise that fits the bill?
