Education Franchise News: Over 50 Master Franchisees from 20 countries participated in this year’s Pingu’s English Master Franchisees Conference held in Dubai, UAE to strengthen an already vital networking system that exists within the Pingu’s English organisation.
The International Conference was boosted by the participation of Marcus Bhargava, Head of School of Education at Kingston University, London.
The two-day event took place in the highest hotel in the World, JW Marriott Marquis Dubai, in the Business Bay area last week. The venue was the perfect location to launch a revolutionary product in Pre-school Education that will be a cutting edge,bilingual solution for all kindergartens and language schools worldwide, the International Pingu’s English Kindergarten.
The conference opened by presenting three case studies to the rest of partners, to show different business models and opportunities in the International English schools for early years children and inspire partners with different ways to grow their business.
Daniele Arboit, Master Licensee for Pingu’s English Italy, presented his winning formula that finds him with over 3000 enrolments and 50 centers in Italy. An incredible statistic, when we consider Italy has the EU’s highest level of youth unemployment, and which clearly shows the English Language teaching sector is a fast-growing business.
Liu Yi, Master Licensee for Pingu’s English China, introduced his case study with an existing extensive network of 30 schools, with a plan to rapidly reach 100+ schools in two years.
Our Master Licensee for Saudi Arabia provided another case study that illustrated how they already use the Pingu’s English brand to assist their target market for Day care, Afterschool and Summer School Programs.
They are already working in partnership with Pingu’s English, and in cooperation with Kingston University, toward the new Pingu’s English International Kindergarten Curriculum which will provide their students with a comprehensive set of materials and teaching that is going to be the best and first of its type worldwide.
Pingu’s English Saudi Arabia already has a purpose build facility that provides ideal class sites and general facilities.
The conference was a great occasion to show the different school models that the International Kindergarten solution has to offer.
Derek Price, CEO at Linguaphone Group, parent company of Pingu’s English said: “Our Pre-school program has been successfully trading for over 10 years functioning as an after-school club and we wanted to help partners and entrepreneurs worldwide who want to maximise their premises potential with a Kindergarten solution. We can offer strong branding, over a century of training and operational business competency with emphasis on building confidence, a play-based methodology and a potentially lucrative solution. That is why we decided to invest over the last two years in bringing a brand new and innovative product in the franchise education sector worldwide”.
A great step forward has been taken in Franchise Education for early years children. The new Kindergarten product has been welcomed by all Pingu’s English Partners who also saw the added value of the cooperation between Pingu’s English and Kingston University, London.
Marcus Bhargava, from Kingston University, London, highlighted to delegates about the strengths of Kingston University as being thelargest provider of Early Years education in England, providing practitioner and teacher education for 650 students per year.
Mr. Bhargava also explained why they chose to partner with Linguaphone Group to develop Pingu’s English International Kindergarten “There are many important reasons behind our choice including the strong reputation and international brand recognition of Pingu’s English. We knew we would be partnering to develop a world-class curriculum based upon well-established, research-engaged pedagogic principles. Pingu’s English also offered us the freedom and flexibility to innovate, with a holistic vision of children’s development, aiming to develop skilled learners with excellent language and literacy skills who could think creatively, in order to problem solve.
Additionally, the collaboration between Pingu’s English and Kingston University allowed the development team to place great emphasis throughout the programme spiral curriculum model.”
The two days of sessions ended with a fantastic Gala dinner for both Pingu’s English and Direct English partners, both brands under the Linguaphone Group umbrella, where three awards were given to the Best Branded School (Pingu’s English Myanmar), Top Network Growth (Pingu’s English Italy) and No.1 Global Sales (Pingu’s English China).
