I'm a mum to a 22mnth old, qualified primary teacher with a degree in music and was thinking of buying a franchise when a fabulous friend said "you're qualified, set up yourself" so, that's the plan, to set up music classes for pre school in Glasgow North but, I need some help and advice... first steps? basic start up costs? realistic take home income? Thanks for your help
I've enquired about 2 of the franchises and they don't seem to give a huge amount away and I'm pretty sure what they do say is best case scenario and I'm more interested in being realistic about it. what I have found out though is it will cost be about 10/11 grand for the franchise
I am an ex primary teacher too and although I was more than qualified i went with a franchise. Despite being a fab teacher I had never run my own business and being a mum of 2 soon to be 3 I didn't want the hassle of lesson planning resource finding etc. It has worked for me, I have been running my classes for nearly 8yrs now. Mine has an element of music but is signing based. Google TinyTalk and PM me if you want to ask any questions, I can be frank and upfront. By the way mine was no way near 10K, way less than half of that!!!
Hi I am a teacher, hoping to set up a youth theatre in the local area (we are East London). I want to do it myself so that I can be in control of philosophy etc but it is scary! Would be happy to share business plans- not done yet/support etc. PM me if you want to chat.
Hi. I was a teacher, and afterhaving my kids, looked into buying a fanchaise, but I started my own pre school music business! i got some shakers, bells, CD's and puppets, and i have been sucessful for 4 years now!! Because you are a teacher, schools will snap you up, to take their pre schoolers once a week, for music, as the teacher canm go off on PPA time. Don't buy a fanchaise! do it yourself, then you can plan your own sessions, to fit in with the groups you deliver to, using your teaching skills!
