What do I get?
We provide you with the opportunity to work for yourself. Simply put, you get a system that works and all the support you need to work it. We have a proven track record and can point to our successes — we will help you own your own school.
Modern English franchisees take advantage of an established system that has signed up thousands of students. For a monthly fee and commission, you get trained, professional, bilingual telephone sales and marketing support six days a week, website advertising, a proven trial lesson method, curriculum and teaching and operations training.
We talk about ‘switching on’ new schools. We do the initial groundwork — we find premises and do all the negotiations to get a school into them. Once the premises are secured and fitted out; the signs are up; you have been fully trained; the flyers are out and the adverts are in — we switch on the school and the phones start ringing. We book free trials, you do the free trials as trained, and you call us. We speak to the students and close the sales. The students sign up and you teach them. Your school has been switched on and it’s working.
How well does it work? Between 70 and 80% of students we send to your school for a free trial join up. Approximately 50% of all new enquirers that call us about your school will become your students.
The team that got you here stays with you. We support you as you grow. All enquires come to our freedial number at head office. We answer all the calls, do the all sales, prepare all the copy, do all the counselling, schedule all the classes and listen to the students’ voices so you don’t have to — you can concentrate on teaching.
