Daily Life of a Franchisee
The franchisee is responsible for building and managing the business, for ensuring its profitability and for building relationships within the marketplace.
You will be meeting with school heads, presenting at assemblies, communicating with parents, managing your teachers and planning curriculum delivery.
If you enjoy children, value education, understand the need for ICT and have passion this could be the business for you.
