Before i joined fishers they did them but i am glad to say they have not done them for two years now thank GOD. The boss to be fair used to I understand make up the difference to the instructor but i am led to belive the customers were not worth having.

It's actually worse than nothing, given that Groupon take around half of the money, so the instructor will not even be covering fuel costs.

Unfortunately this is the "death rattle" for this school given that 10 for £99 has not pulled in the work, paying to teach your own pupils is the fast track to bankruptcy.

Re: Groupon. I know you've heard it before. But this!!

Won't be me.  If they're daft enough to work for nothing, leave them to it and let them go out of business.  That way the rest of us can earn a living at a decent rate.

Re: Groupon. I know you've heard it before. But this!!

I don't think anybody has to work so cheap if they don't want to. These stupid offers only bring the wrong type of pupil in anyway. I think there are plenty of people out there who will pay the proper rate for a good instructor.
