With over 60 years of experience, Kumon has established itself as the largest provider of supplementary education in the UK.
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 parent, Liz witnessed the extraordinary progress her own children made through studying Kumon. So, when a centre re-opening opportunity arose, Liz jumped at the opportunity to run her own Kumon business.
Years on, Liz continues to enjoy a highly successful career with Kumon, having achieved Elite Instructor status, presented at national conferences, and gained immense job satisfaction from nurturing so many students through the Kumon programmes; all while enjoying the flexibility of fitting her job around her own family life.
Seeking a career-change from classroom teaching, Anouska discovered a fantastic solution in Kumon. Being a Kumon Instructor means Anouska no longer needs to negotiate a ‘one size fits all’ classroom approach and can now provide very tailored support to each individual child at her centre. Helping every child grow in this way is the aspect of her job Anouska finds most rewarding.
Following a career in finance, Cherelle opted for the exciting new venture of opening a brand new Kumon centre in a fresh market. She takes great pleasure in pursuing her passion for nurturing children into confident learners, and feels driven to grow her business widely within her community.
With a passion for education and a desire to have a positive impact on others, teacher Harriet was drawn to Kumon because of its unique method, which helps children develop abilities in so many areas; both academically and more broadly in life.
Throughout his 20-year teaching career, Deputy Headteacher Jonathan encountered a number of impressive students at his schools who attended local Kumon centres.
Amazed by their positive attitude to learning, Jonathan felt inspired to open his own business as a Kumon Instructor and help many more children in his local area feel the joy of reaching their full potential with the Kumon programmes.
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
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
