The MagiKats Business is a rewarding and successful Childrens Education Franchise. After over ten years of operation, this mature business needs dedicated, energetic and motivated individuals to expand into new areas.
MagiKats Maths and English is a family owned franchise which delivers tutoring in small groups to children from pre-school to GCSE (or local equivalent qualification). But no teaching experience is required to be a franchisee!
The MagiKats franchise offers you a unique opportunity to enjoy a better working life:
The first franchisee joined the network in 2004. Since then, growth has been focused on finding the right person for the right area. MagiKats currently have around 25 centres in the UK.
The franchise management - As the franchisee you will run the business, plan programmes and manage a small team of mentors to deliver the programme.
You will use MagiKats unique computer system to manage the students’ programmes (don’t worry, they will train you first), monitor their progress and provide feedback to parents.
You will employ mentors (a more inclusive title than tutors) to deliver the workshops and usually (but not always), you will attend and run each workshop session and liaise with parents.
Back in the office, you’ll deal with marketing, preparing work for the students, taking sales calls, dealing with parents and monitoring customer payments.
But again, don’t worry, MagiKats comprehensive training and support provides you with access to decades of experience and practical guidance on all aspects of running your franchise.
The workshops - MagiKats workshops offer maths and English tutoring in small groups. Each student studies a two-strand programme of curriculum support and core skills development.
In addition to core subject skills, MagiKats help develop skills in thinking, problem solving, studying and socialising. Every MagiKats student has a programme put together for them as an individual — no two programmes will ever be identical.
A balance of customer liaison, sales and marketing activities, local networking and workshop preparation.
Totally flexible, you can fit MagiKats activities in to your other daily commitments.
Absolutely. Many MagiKats franchisees are parents or carers. Others have hobbies that require commitments at specific times or days, so they fit their MagiKats business in with those other activities.
100% support – Any new business or venture can be daunting but MagiKats provide you with everything you need from marketing materials and advice, training, computer software and support with your launch.
They will help train you and your staff and they will be there at the end of the phone if you want some advice.
Complete flexibility – A MagiKats franchise means you can work flexible hours to suit your lifestyle. But it also allows you to choose how involved you want to be.
You might just want to run and manage your business or you may wish to have a more hands on role with the children. It’s up to you.
Experienced family owners – As a family owned and run business, they are very passionate about MagiKats. Your success is their success so they will support you every step of the way. MagiKats have run their own franchises, so they understand what it’s like and they happily share their knowledge.
What you don’t need - MagiKats' priority is getting the right people, not just as many people as possible. But that doesn’t mean you have to be a qualified teacher.
In fact, you don’t need any teaching experience at all to own a franchise and run your Tuition Centre. All necessary training is provided.
What you do need – You need to be enthusiastic about running your own business and have an interest in education. That’s it!
Good question! The answer of course will vary from franchise to franchise, how many workshops you run, how many children you enrol and how many mentors you employ, as well as other business overheads such as use of premises.
MagiKats can’t make any promises about how much you’ll earn. But, by way of example, it’s not unusual for some franchisees to have 60 children enrolled and be turning over £6,500 per month. Their largest centres have over 250 children enrolled. The franchise fee is £15,000 (inclusive of VAT).
I only have to work approximately 20 hours a week with my centre and I'm earning a great full-time salary. The MagiKats HQ staff are really active and always ready to help, motivate and support you when required. That’s all you need to be honest.Iftikhar Hussain, MagiKats Franchisee in Edinburgh
