Business concept

Kumon has been running in Ireland for almost a decade, but it is also a worldwide organisation which has been running for more than 50 years. Kumon is not a small company which could disappear overnight. There are currently 83,000 students studying Kumon throughout Europe, and over 4.2 million worldwide.

Training and Support

At Kumon they believe that “your success is our success.” You will run your own business and be your own boss, but will have Kumon's world-famous brand and more than 50 years of experience right behind you.

Whether it's academic or business support that you need, Kumon is committed to helping your franchise become a success. Once you have completed their in-depth new Instructor training programme, Kumon’s network of Area Managers and marketing professionals will be there to guide and assist you throughout your career with Kumon, advising you on the best way to grow and maintain your centre.

Kumon is commited to offering their franchisees substantial support, including a 60% subsidy on local advertising costs. The core programme worksheets are provided free of charge, and most other materials are available via an efficient easy-order system from Kumon’s warehouse. Kumon also provides a range of national marketing initiatives and community schemes, and comprehensive professional development for all their Instructors.

The Franchisee

If you enjoy working with children and have some prior business experience, that's a very good start. Kumon is looking to recruit highly motivated, professional individuals who want to make a difference to the futures of children in their area. If you are inspired by helping children achieve and would relish the challenge of running your own small business, you could be an ideal Kumon Instructor.

About us

Focusing on the vital subjects of maths and English, Kumon helps children develop their learning skills and exceed expectations with their worksheet and study centre-based programmes.

As a Kumon Instructor you would run your own study centre, managing the franchise alongside the development of your students. The more you put in to growing your business the more you will reap the rewards, both in terms of seeing children develop their confidence and learning ability, as well as financially.

History

Kumon was started 50 years ago in Japan by Toru Kumon, a teacher and parent who wanted to help his son do better in school. The unique instructional method he created was so successful that his son was able to do calculus by the time he was in the sixth grade.

Market

Kumon has a global community of franchisees stretching across 46 countries. In Ireland they currently have over 300 students in eight study centres which contributes to the total of more than 83,000 students studying with Kumon throughout Europe.
