Full Description




The Brand

Edublox has been a role player in the South African educational industry and beyond for 35+ years.

The current comprehensive range of products and services presented at Edublox branches is founded on pedagogical research and experience demonstrating that weak underlying cognitive skills account for the majority of learning difficulties. Specific cognitive training can strengthen these weaknesses, leading to increased performance in reading, spelling, writing, maths and learning. Some of our programmes are exported to various countries but the newest, latest and best techniques and methods are used and presented exclusively at the Edublox clinics and centres.

Our key values include:

• Developing learners to achieve results — improvement in school performance and self-image, and creating a basis for lifelong learning and future career success.
• Quality and compassionate customer service.
• Providing safe, challenging and fun learning experiences.

Concept

Edublox provides two different offerings to potential franchisees – Edublox reading, maths and learning clinics and Edublox maths and reading centres.
