With over 60 years of experience, Kumon has established itself as the largest global supplementary education provider. Today, over 600 franchisees run their Kumon study centres in the UK, and around 3.6 million children are part of its worldwide network.
The Kumon Method of Learning has been designed to help any child, no matter their ability, reach their maximum potential and become an enthusiastic, life-long learner.
Kumon offers so much more than tutoring and differs from conventional classroom teaching. Rather than preparing children for a specific test or assessment, Kumon Instructors guide their students through work set at just the right level for them. By encouraging students to work out answers for themselves, children develop increased self-belief and confidence, which translates across all subjects at school, and beyond in the wider world.

Kumon is looking for driven professionals who are passionate about education, children and helping them build a brighter future.

Initial Investment: £3,000 for your licence fee (this covers £1,500 per subject for English and maths).
You will require an additional £1,500 - £2,000 for marketing across the first 12 months.
