WHY (OWN) A FRANCHISE?

Franchising is a booming business model that allows independent minded people to be in business for themselves, but not by themselves.

The franchise concept provides a potential business owner with a chance to align with a well-established brand and a proven record of success.

PRIVATE CAREER COLLEGES WHAT ARE THEY?

Private career colleges are privately owned organizations that provide career-specific and vocational training to meet labour-market needs in a broad range of occupational fields.

Private career colleges must be registered or licensed, when as applicable, under local or national legislation to ensure that they meet minimum financial, program, and other basic requirements. In some jurisdictions, there are additional processes for voluntary accreditation or quality assurance.

AOLCC - WHAT DO WE DO?

Founded as a franchise organization in 1987, Academy of Learning® Career College is a training leader offering a wide range of Diploma-level and Certificate-level programs as well as skills upgrading courses, which are relied on by students, employers and government agencies.

Our desire is to graduate people who excel in the skills we’ve assisted them to develop and the skills that employers and communities will need. Our success is based on the unique approach of identifying the gap between a formal education and the realities of the working world. Today, AOLCC locations can be found across Canada in PEI, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and B.C. We are interested in expanding AOLCC internationally with qualified franchise partners who have both the professional experience and the financial resources to develop our brand in their home country.

HOW WE ARE DIFFERENT - ILS

What differentiates Academy of Learning® Career College from other private career colleges is Integrated Learning System (ILS).

ILS provides course materials and instructions on-line to offer an all-encompassing learning experience. As a result, the ILS system delivers program content using a variety of tools including workbooks, media presentations, hands-on exercises, and competency-based exams. Depending on the program and the desired learning outcome, we provide both in-class and virtual instructor-led content delivery. In all cases, students are supported by an on-site qualified Learning Coach. In other words, this approach to learning shifts away from teaching in the traditional lecture format to an on-site, facilitated, learning-by-doing method. ILS accommodates both the variations in student learning styles as well as the variety of methods for delivering program content. In a sense, ILS is our unique “technology” – it is how we ensure the best and most sustainable results for students committed to gaining the knowledge that is relevant and necessary in their chosen field.

WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY

AOLCC graduates hundreds of students each year most of whom go on to find work in their chosen field and live happy and productive lives.

Many of the students who come through our doors are there because of a personal recommendation from an AOLCC graduate friend or colleague. The best way to know what students say about their experience is to let them say it themselves: Student Testimonials

THE AOLCCFRANCHISE NETWORK

Academy of Learning® Career College has about 50 campus locations across Canada.

The Franchise Support Office in the Toronto, Ontario (Canada) offers training, all curriculum materials and other administrative services to Franchise Owners. We hold an annual conference that allows for networking, information sharing and some good “business fun”. We will also provide you with lead generation support from our web site and our call centre, but leads will also have to be generated at the local level by the Franchise Owner.

DEALING WITH REGULATORS

Each AOLCC campus and its ownership must be registered and approved by the appropriate government regulatory body in the province, state or territory in which it operates.

Some programs as well as some courses provided by the campus may also have to be registered and approved by the regulatory body before those programs and courses can be offered. The Franchise Support Office will help you develop positive working relationships with relevant organizations and individuals as you build your business.

ALREADY A FRANCHISE OWNER?

Perhaps you are already running a business in the education or a related field either as a Franchise Owner or as an independent business owner.

We would welcome your enquiry. Given your background, you already have the skills and knowledge to “hit the ground running”. Now is a good opportunity to join forces with a growing company and one of the largest private career colleges in Canada.

INVESTMENT REQUIRED

In addition to an upfront franchise fee of $40,000-$85,000, the minimum financial requirements range from approximately $240,000 to $495,000 depending on your preferred location, the territory itself and how large a campus you wish to open.

In addition to having to establish and equip a training environment in accord with our specifications, you will also have to hire a Learning Coach and we strongly recommend you hire a full time Admissions person to follow up on leads and help drive your business. More detailed information is available should you choose to pursue this further. There is a less tangible investment required, however, that will be critical to your success and the success of the students: your time and energy to personally manage and grow the business. That means taking appropriate initiatives within your local area to create awareness of AOLCC among our target market and enroll students in the programs on offer. For International interest outside Canada, multi-campus development would require a minimum of $500,000 investment, depending on the territory and number of campuses.
