“Creating a large, successful and dynamic centre has given us many things. An ability to enjoy the lifestyle we wanted, the freedom, flexibility and control of the business that we needed and most importantly the opportunity to do something vital – the chance to change people’s lives.”

"I had a lovely comment from a fairly new student today, Nada said "working here is so much more fun than school.” I asked her why she thought that and she said “Because of the atmosphere, it’s calm with no distractions." Interestingly she’s been telling her friends and so far she’s been leaving with a big grin every week.
After I had a child I couldn’t face returning full time to teaching but wanted to continue to use my teaching qualification. Taking on a Kip McGrath franchise meant I could carry on doing what I loved while running my own business and spending much more time at home. Although I had no business experience the whole process of becoming self employed was easy. The Kip McGrath training and resources are excellent and it is so rewarding to see pupils make such amazing progress."

"I have always enjoyed teaching but wanted more than the classroom experience, to see results for individual children and have feedback from parents with whom you could develop a relationship on a more frequent basis than at termly intervals and parent's evenings.
The Kip McGrath experience has more than fulfilled this and I can see our children grow, academically and physically, as they overcome the barriers to understanding that have built up in them. Children who change from a 'can't do... no good at' response to 'I will be able to ...can do' enthusiastic approach to learning bring us job satisfaction and joy every day.
Even when the students are ready to leave, many still pop in from time to time so that they can bring me up-to-date with what they are doing now. We are also seeing children that have previously attended, returning for GCSE and coming back with younger siblings who can't wait to start with us. You'll enjoy, and learn from the Kip programme, so come and join us."

"Since becoming a Kip McGrath Franchisee I have found a new independence and energy in my work life, whilst still enjoying the job I love, teaching. The business support provided by the Master Franchisees has been invaluable and I have seen the business go from strength to strength with their guidance and help. It is also very rewarding to know that we are helping children to achieve success and gain confidence.
This has been a truly life-changing experience and one which I hope to enjoy for many years to come!"

"The franchise system is something that works very well for anybody who does not have experience of running a business. There are an established number of contacts that can be used and the advice given to new franchisees is first-rate. There is always somebody at the other end of the phone to help and to provide advice with any matters, should it be teaching the programmes, finance, business matters, marketing etc.
The materials that we use in Kip McGrath are first rate and the
progress that the students make is fantastic. It is refreshing to be
supported in a business that works not only through its support and
efficiency, but because it truly places the needs of individual children
at the heart of the business model. This is a business for teachers who
care passionately about the development of children. At Kip, it is
achieved in a supportive environment free of needless bureaucracy and
