Join a franchise in one of the fastest growing sectors in the UK… Education
Choice Home Tutoring was founded in 2010 by Joanne and Colin Murphy, who have almost three decades of experience in education, in their local area of Manchester. They saw a growing demand for experienced and reliable tutors to work with students in their homes and to help learners of all ages fulfil their potential.
The success of the business led to it being franchised in 2019 followed by it becoming a member of the British Franchise Association in 2022 – recognition of the business being run in a professional and ethical manner.
Choice Home Tutoring provides exceptional private one-to-one and small group tuition to students of all ages, predominantly in their own homes, by matching students with the most suitable tutor. Trusted by thousands of students, their commitment to delivering first-class, personalised tuition is what sets them apart.
To be a Choice Home Tutoring franchisee, you don’t need a background in teaching!
The Demand for Private Tuition The private tuition sector has seen unprecedented growth in recent years, as parents increasingly turn to tutoring to supplement their child’s school education or prepare their son or daughter for specific exams.
Recent estimates put the size of the sector at between £2-6bn, making UK parents and students among the highest per capita spenders on tuition worldwide.
According to research by The Sutton Trust, more than one in four (27%) 11-16-year olds have received private tuition, a figure that has risen by 50% since the Trust started collecting tuition data in 2005.
This remarkable growth shows little signs of slowing, and the demand for tuition services is projected to maintain its growth trajectory for years to come.
Who Will Your Customers Be?
Your primary customer base will be families with children, but your clients will also include university graduates and adult learners, as well as schools and other agencies. The vast majority of your learners will be of primary or high school age. The families you will support will come from a wide variety of socioeconomic backgrounds, but they all share the goal of wanting to enhance their child’s life chances through tuition.
The National Tutoring Programme (NTP) Choice Home Tutoring is proud to be a DfE-approved Tuition Partner of the NTP. This government level recognition means that the company has been trusted to deliver much needed tuition to schools and their most disadvantaged students in order to maximise achievement. Their franchisees are able to take advantage of this status to support schools within their own territories and to further bolster their revenue.
What Sets Choice Home Tutoring Apart? All Choice Home Tutoring tutors are carefully vetted. They are specialists in their subject areas and are university graduates as a minimum requirement. The strength of their subject knowledge is reflected in the hugely positive feedback received from parents and students.
Tutors are carefully matched to students – something that is vital if progress is to be made; learning becomes difficult when there is no connection between student and teacher!
Above all, the company recognises that all students are different and learn in different ways; its success has been borne out of a devotion to delivering a service that is sensitive and personalised to each of their customers.
The Choice Home Tutoring Training & Support Initial training takes place over several days at their Manchester head office or online or a combination. Familiarisation with Choice Home Tutoring day-to-day operations and systems includes comprehensive software training. You will sit in on tutor interviews and have plenty of opportunity to experience how they liaise with customers. Excellent customer service is crucial to growing the reputation of your business.
After the initial settling in phase, you will meet with the Choice Home Tutoring management team at least four times per year. Further structured ongoing training will be delivered on a quarterly basis. Ad-hoc support is available to franchisees as required.
As a franchisee, you can be assured that their devoted team will be with you every step of the way – from the initial stages of training to providing continual support as your business grows.
The Franchise Package: The initial franchise fee for a Choice Home Tutoring franchise business is only £14,950 exc VAT; however, you can have just £10,000 in readily available funds, as the balance can be funded by one of the main high street banks, or you may be eligible for the Government’s Business Start-Up Loan Scheme – which we can assist with.
