Once you have 200+ students in your territory and are earning an average of £70,000 per year, you can look to expand further with more schools and more territories. We will help you recruit managers and you will move up into a director-level position.
With multiple territories established you could be earning £150,000+ per year and have the security of an asset of considerable value to sell in the future.
