Next Steps

Repurposing Teaching Skills

Working as a SENCO in her local secondary school, Kirsty saw first hand the difference she could make to the education of the pupils in her care. However, over time she became frustrated with working in a large school and began to consider her next steps.

MagiKats Franchise - Maths and English Childrens Education BusinessKirsty knew how important it was to her to be able to continue working with children, seeing them flourish and develop into confident young adults with a good standard of education under their belts. After finding out she was pregnant with her first child, she also wanted to be able to have time to be a mum – something which she knew would be a challenge working full time in a school.

Kirsty decided to join the MagiKats network in late 2019, but the pandemic meant that her training had to be delayed until the Summer of 2020, and then she opened workshops in September 2020, only to have to switch quickly to offering them online in January 2021. Despite the obvious challenges, Kirsty’s resilience and positive attitude towards future opportunities meant that her new business flourished and has built steadily ever since.

Changing from being an employee to a self-employed business owner is scary and exciting in equal measure – but teachers often have just the right attributes to make it a successful transition.
