You’ll promote Explore in a variety of different ways; visiting libraries and schools, using social media, and supporting promotional events in local venues. These brand building events will build your reputation, and attract new members to join.
Working towards your centre growth target, you’ll be booking and holding trial sessions for potential new members; demonstrating the incredible service we provide and encouraging them to join.

Meet our Managers
I began my journey at Explore Learning back in 2015. I immediately noticed how helpful the other tutors were towards each other and the inclusive nature the management team had too. I tutored in a number of centres across London and Birmingham before joining the management team as an Assistant Director in Walsall. Looking back to my first few weeks as a tutor, I will always cherish how full of energy the children were and the extremely positive environment. This resonated with me and I soon began to realise the unique Explore approach brought the best out of children and staff alike! My proudest moment as a Tutor was being voted as the Regional Tutor of the Year Winner in 2018.
Following my graduation from university with a degree in Business Information Technology, I successfully applied for the Assistant Director role. I joined the team launching a new centre in Walsall. I have enjoyed every moment of being part of the centre’s launch. Seeing our beautiful centre go from zero to hero was an amazing experience! I have a passion for working with young people and was able to support our brand-new tutor team, which was particularly exciting having been a tutor myself. Seeing the team grow in confidence and supporting newer tutors is truly very rewarding.
My proudest moment so far as an Assistant Director was growing our membership; supporting over 220 children every single month in Walsall within our 1st year of opening. I look forward to supporting many more children along their journey’s to being fearless!
Before joining Explore Learning and following my graduation, I spent almost 3 years in the entertainment industry working as an actor/singer. I was attracted to the variety of the Assistant Director role – it provides you with the opportunity to up-skill yourself in many different fields such as marketing and sales, business management and Education. No one day is the same and that is what keeps it interesting. I’m also get to work alongside a great team!
One of the most exciting elements of the role is having the chance to work alongside and inspire our young fearless learners who come to gain some extra help in their maths and English. Not one child is the same and this is what makes it so engaging. You are constantly being challenged.
I began working at Explore Learning as a tutor in 2014, whilst I was studying Drama and Education Studies at University. I loved supporting each and every child with their work! After living in Asia for four years as a child and witnessing how education is so valued to those who have so little, I knew I wanted to ensure every child experiences the best education and I feel that is exactly what Explore Learning does.
Every day at Explore is different which keeps it exciting and unique as a job. I always wanted to work in the education sector and whilst being a tutor I was planning to become a teacher. Being a tutor made me realise how great Explore is, it offers a fun and educational experience for children in order for every child to reach their full potential. From understanding this my plans changed. As soon as I graduated I knew I wanted to apply for the Assistant Director position.
I feel that Explore Learning offers such a great service to both children and parents. The most rewarding part of the role is seeing children progress and be so happy and excited to tell you about their achievements. I find myself smiling every day at work! Following my success as an Assistant Director, I was promoted to become a Centre Director, and I can’t wait to see how my Explore Learning career progresses.
