Lingotot provides foreign language classes for children aged 0-11 in French, Spanish, German, Chinese and Arabic. Classes take place in community centres, nurseries and schools. We teach approximately 12,000 children each week. Our courses are fully accredited by NCFE, an OfQual regulated awarding body and they are the ONLY accredited primary languages courses in the UK.
The network has 44 franchisees in the UK, mostly women looking for highly professional and flexible work. The average Lingotot franchisee generates an annual income of £26,000 for teaching 13 hours per week during term time only with all school holidays off. We also employ a large network of languages teachers via the franchisees.
In addition to our courses for children being accredited, our teacher training courses are also accredited by NCFE, making the franchise a great option for aspiring languages teachers who prefer an alternative to the PGCE route.
Our Head Office is in the North East of England with and office in Dubai. We also have an optional European License with an office in Dublin.
Liz Burdis from Lingotot Hertford says, “I operate my business part time as it offers me the best balance between teaching fun lessons and being able to spend time and do things with my own boys – I’ve never yet had to miss my son’s first day of nursery, his first nativity play etc. After just 6 months of running my business, I expanded my business. My community classes also trebled in numbers within the first year.”
