UK & Ireland
Join the Lingotot family and discover a wonderful work-life balance, a financially rewarding and flexible career and the opportunity to grow a business in line with your aspirations.
Lingotot is the UK’s pioneering children’s language franchise. It was founded in 2010 by Angela Sterling after a successful career as a languages teacher. Lingotot allowed Angela to continue teaching whilst raising her two young daughters, achieving a sustainable work-life balance. Once she discovered self employment allowed her to do this effectively, she decided to franchise Lingotot in 2011 and offer a real opportunity to other people in her position looking for a flexible, family-orientated and financially rewarding career.
Lingotot now teaches our award winning classes to over 20,000 children (and their parents) each and every week. We teach French, Spanish, German, Italian, English, Welsh, Arabic and Mandarin Chinese classes in community groups, preschools, nurseries, online, in after school and holiday clubs, and uniquely by teaching languages directly in schools.
The Lingotot method of teaching makes use of active, communicative and interactive teaching approaches which come naturally to young learners. Learning is through songs, stories, games, drama and play.
As a Lingotot franchise partner, you will choose which languages to teach and what kinds of classes. Being multilingual is an advantage but not a requirement. If your language skills need to be revisited, we have a LingoBoost programme which will polish them up. However, some of our franchisees do not speak any other languages themselves and engage tutors to teach the lessons - the choice is yours!
When you join the Lingotot family you enter a friendly and professional network from a range of different backgrounds who all share a common purpose: making language learning accessible and fun for young learners. We have created a framework that not only ensures our network has all of the practical support they need, but also the personal.
Before anyone joins the network, our CEO and founder Angela personally takes the time to talk them through the realities of running a Lingotot business and whether it meets their goals. She will look at how much you need to earn to support yourself and your family and what this translates into work-wise. These conversations are conducted truthfully and transparently so you are both completely comfortable with the decision.
Your income projection could be circa £30,000 per year based on teaching 10 hours per week, we have franchise partners who have exceeded £100,000 per annum. The amount you can earn depends entirely on how much work you want to do. No matter what your decision, you will have our full support.
You will always be supported every step of the way, from thorough initial training, weekly webinars, 1:1 meetings, access to our private Facebook group, direct contact with HQ and through our award-winning Intranet system, LingoHub, and so much more! You will also have access to the Lingotot Academy where you can complete qualifications, access all of our online training videos, find our lesson plans, songs and resources - everything a teacher needs to run a Lingotot class which you can access at any time.
