At present we are particularly interested in recruiting franchisees in the West Midlands, Manchester, and Buckinghamshire/Berkshire area. Other areas may be considered.

Lion Learners are offering the opportunity for talented, dedicated individuals to join our team of franchise holders and build themselves a business that will allow them to work with people of all ages, animals from around the world and best of all, be their own boss.

Lion Learners have been operating since 2009 and have been a successful franchise for three years. In that time we have expanded across Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, East Anglia, the East Midlands, the North West and the North East.

Request more information

If you would like more information about our franchise opportunity, or to apply, please fill out the form below and we will get back to you.

* Required field

As a franchise holder you will be fully trained by qualified teachers in working with groups of children in schools, libraries, nurseries and at parties. You will also get full training working in residential homes and with people with additional needs. As well as this you you also receive training in animal husbandry for a range of animals by a member of our animal welfare team. Training will take place both at your home and at our training centre ‘South Angle Farm Park’ in Cambridgeshire, which is also owned and operated by Lion Learners.

No specific experience or qualifications are required, but experience of working with children and/or animals is preferable.

Lion Learners have built a reputation of providing outstanding educational sessions and uphold the highest standards. Franchises are only offered to those who we feel can work at these high standards. So if you are motivated enough to run your own business and be your own boss, then get in touch.

Our North West presenter, Alex, was interviewed about her franchise by Conservation Careers. See Alex’s interview on their website here to find out more about working with Lion Learners.
