Study and Career Flexibility 

 

We offer you the opportunity to access high quality training and to use our professional materials, handouts and resources to help you build up your business. We are not offering a parent and baby massage and yoga franchise. We offer training based on our brand and excellent teaching materials. We are an independent training provider and ask for NO ONGOING LICENSING FEES. This means that you are able to build up and invest in your own business more quickly. You are free to use our logo and/or trade under your own brand name if you wish.

We aim to be as flexible as possible in meeting your training needs as we know that many of our students already have jobs or family responsibilities which can make it difficult to fit study around a busy lifestyle. If you have an idea how you would like to train with us, let us know and we might be able to help. It is possible to top up any training style with an individual study consultation day with Gayle Berry which would allow you to ask any questions about any aspect of the course you are studying.
