Pink badge Transfer

I'm currently on a pinky, and the licence started May time, expires in Nov.

I've nearly completed the 20hours Training as per requested from DSA, but that is done thru the college.

I have just enough pupils to pay the Franchise, Car rental, Fuel and making a minimum profit to pay for living expenses and still do training.
I currently do approx 22 hours teaching per week, and to me thats enough.

My query that i'm paying a whopping £70 per week from a national establishment just for the franchise alone, when you think about it thats a few more hours just to pay for that alone, when i can be putting that into Quality training.

I get my own pupils, and self advertise for nothing, the school has supplied 3 pupils since i've started.
I feel that because i'm a Trainee they have me by the short and curlies, contract time is only 3 months.

I'm hoping to have my test for approx end of August, if all goes we'll then i go independent, if not then what would be be the best cause of action with regards to the franchise ?
I know the procedure regards to the pink licence, its the franchise thats causing the concern.

Or am i taking the risk, and leave it as it is until I Qualify ?

Re: Pink badge Transfer

Not quiet sure what you are asking really. If you are asking about terminating the contract, you seem to be on a 3 month fixed term or is that 3 months notice required?

If a fixed term then you have to pay for the balance of that term. If 3 months notice you can leave today if you want, but willm still have to pay the 3 months notice period.

As for pupils, I am afraid this is universal with Franchises. They do not guarantee even one pupil. Any you do get are just a bonus. You have done the right thing by generating your own pupils.

You say you have been paying for the franchise and apart from 3 pupils they have given you nothing else, but haven't they supplied training or supervision?

Going indi is always my recommendation. You seem to have the right ideas about generating pupils and running things. I hope it all works out for you whatever your choice. If you have any doubts over the franchise then talk to them first. If unhappy or unclear still, talk to a solicitor. Whatever you do, do NOT just walk away as you may be under a legal obligation to pay (and probably are).

Re: Pink badge Transfer

not only are you tied in with the franchise, but to work with a PINK license you must be sponsered by a school.
