Becoming an Instructor

How we can help you

Kumon offers a proven business model, and by becoming a Kumon franchisee you are establishing a relationship with a successful global company established for 60 years, now operating in more than 50 countries worldwide. Kumon has over 4 million students worldwide.

You will be able to use our unique Kumon study programmes and benefit from our extensive training and support. Kumon's existing brand awareness will help you to build a thriving student base and gain return on investment.
When buying a new franchise, you will be required to have a minimum start-up capital of the equivalent of R60,000. This includes the equivalent of R7,000 for your initial licence fee. In addition, you will need to make provision for rent and other running costs, including cashflow. In the case of buying an existing franchise, an appreciation fee is paid to the outgoing Instructor for taking over their business.
From initial enquiry, Instructors generally take between three to six months to get up and running. These timelines vary depending on location and whether it is a new or existing Kumon study centre.
Becoming a Kumon Instructor is a full-time business commitment.
