I might not be able to give comprehensive details , owing to time limitation, as you would have wanted but believe me, the succinct information I am about to provide is from experience as I have been able to start and run successful Cambridge A level centre on behalf of others at two different times. Here are the steps to take.

STEP 1. Get A Decent, Secure And Accessible Venue.

You must know that A-level is fairly more competitive recently than ever. It’s not so much about how many competitors are close to your chosen location; it’s everything about your strategy around students recruitment and retention. All you should care about is security, decency and accessibility of your location as long as you have boarding facilities in place.

Your brick-and-mortal facilities can be rented apartment. Do not start this business if you are not ready to provide accommodation facilities as sizeable portion of your students would be coming from other states. Cost implication of securing venue depends on your location: Lagos, Ibadan, Ogun or Abuja. Plus or minus, you should budget in the range of NGN 500k-1.5m . You can cut your cloth according to your size though.

STEP 2. Get Your Current Assets Together.

This include teaching materials, endorsed text books, experienced teachers, and working capital.

STEP 3. Get Accredited By British Council

Many folks look down on this step. However, experience has shown that while you can be successful on the business without even getting accredited, there are huge intrinsic benefits to derive from getting accredited by the British council.


This is the most important steps. you have to carefully craft out strategies towards recruiting students. Also, it’s one thing to be able to recruit students; it’s another thing entirely to be able to retain the students.  Make sure to include other examinations like IELTS, TOEFL, GRE, GMAT and PTE to optimize your ROI. You might even consider getting a test centre.

STEP 5; Swing To Action

It’s to to implement your strategies. If you need more information, visit
