Our New Franchisee Training is an enjoyable, interactive and intensive introduction to the day-to-day work of a Kumon franchisee. Training is held online across all locations. Trainees will first complete a self-study component. This study can be completed in your own time. We then hold online group study sessions up to 16 days. This is a great chance to meet other new trainees and consolidate the learning from your own pre-study. During this time, we also incorporate business and operations training with short meetings focusing on setting up your individual centre.
