Run a franchise

By Kate Ball: Founder of Mini First Aid

Mini First Aid started in Leeds, where I applied my 10 years experience as the Head of Learning and Development for Mars (the chocolate people!) to create inspiring first aid courses that would be fun and memorable as well as incredibly informative.

Today we have franchises across the UK, all run by lovely mums who want a great work life balance and who are empowered to create successful businesses.

The Mini First Aid business is simple. 2 hour baby & child first aid classes for groups of up to 10, for just £20 per person. Priced at a point where people can afford the class and don’t rule it out on expense. The class is mobile so can be in play centres, cafes or in people’s living rooms.

Mini First Aid are looking for more people to come and join our award winning team. You need to be a confident communicator, be passionate about First Aid, babies and children and have a desire to run your own flexible business around your family.

With an initial investment you get the following:  Full training and certification as a Paediatric First Aid Instructor and all the tools required to start your franchise business.

The weekly subscription fee provides you with ongoing business coaching support for your business, national and regional PR and editorial and ongoing professional development.

The franchise is available for 3 years – at which point you get an option to renew or go and do something different!

The best bit, you can work as much or as little as you want, so if you only want to run 1 class a week and earn £200 per week, you can – and 1 class is just 2 hours (with a bit of time invested in the admin).
