Jeff secures four weeks of school funded holiday courses - find out how...

During a recent Support Day from James Jennison, franchisee Jeff Abram and James discussed the various types of Inspire to Engage holiday courses he should be considering. The model that really excited Jeff was school funded courses. They outlined how the courses would work for parents, schools and business owners using the following method;

  1. Charge the school £250 + vat per day for two Act Pro’s (9am - 4pm) allowing for 32 children.
  2. The school then charges £8 per day, per child to attend.
  3. If the 32 places got filled then it’s cost neutral to the school. The school can also add school premium children to boost numbers.

As a result, parents get unbelievable value for £8.00 per day and business owners make circa £120.00 per day (net profit) after wages, vat & commission.

With this model in mind, Jeff had a Head teacher review meeting lined up shortly after the Support Day and decided he would add holiday clubs to the agenda.
