A+ Students has countrywide and international franchise opportunities available.
When purchasing an A+ Students Franchise you will purchase the license for a specific area fro which you will operate and service. No other franchisee may service or operate in your area. You may hire additional teachers to build up your franchise from day 1. You may also expand by purchasing an additional area.
You may start by teaching from schools, créches, pre-schools, church halls or any other approved venue. Within a year you must open a permanent teaching venue which will be shop fitted according to your needs and which may be located in a shopping centre, strip mall, office block, renovated house or any other approved suitable venue where students can come to you.
Once you have opened your permanent teaching venue you may also offer math tutor lessons, Grade 4 – Grade 12 for the older students (lessons are presented by qualified teachers). This additional service is already included when you purchase your franchise so there is only a small training fee which includes the Grade 4 – Grade 12 textbooks.
