First Class Learning’s CEO says the franchise is preparing for a wave of new students following the COVID-19 crisis.
Ed Hyslop explained how the intense disruption to schools has caused many pupils to fall behind. He believes giving young people across the country the tools to continue making progress and catching up will be crucial to their success.
“We all now live in new circumstances, with COVID-19 having impacted every person, family and business across the globe,” said Ed.
“Put simply, things will not go back to normal anytime soon, so we all need to learn, adapt and innovate moving forward. What is crystal clear is that schools will need help. On top of this, the tragic disruption that has been inflicted on a whole generation of pupils means that parents will be seeking extra support to help their children catch up.”
Ed also outlined how the tutoring franchise has adapted the way it operates to make sure it can still work with children safely.
“When the coronavirus hit it was clear our existing model based on physical centres would not be viable during lockdown, so we put systems in place which would mean our students, parents and franchisees would be fully supported digitally during lockdown.”
“We have developed an online learning platform so that our franchisees can continue to support their students remotely. Our tutors have been coming up with innovative ways to keep the children motivated and engaged. We have also put a fund together to help franchisees who may have lost business and are struggling financially.”
Ed concluded by looking ahead to the future, and explaining why First Class Learning is primed and ready to continue trading successfully no matter how long the crisis continues for.
“Education has always been valued in the UK but this crisis has heightened the importance of high standards of education. I believe increasingly parents will be looking for private tuition resources to help their children … and First Class Learning’s [300 franchisees] and National Curriculum-based maths and English programmes are extremely well placed to benefit from this surge in demand.”
