Training and Support for Oscar Franchisees
Our expertise in launching and growing successful OSCAR franchises has evolved for almost two decades, perfecting training programmes and product development. Your success will also be reflected in the continued support from our team of behavioural, nutritional and veterinary experts.
In addition, we are the first and only pet food franchise to offer its network of franchisees a formal nutrition qualification that is recognised by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation Ofqual.
In collaboration with the Centre of Applied Pet Ethology (COAPE), which provides a range of educational courses dedicated to companion animals in both nutrition and behaviour therapy, and continuing education courses in clinical nutrition for the veterinary profession, an individual course has been written exclusively for the concept of OSCAR and its personal service.
With recognition throughout the national education system, gaining this certification allows you to use the designated letters CertCan (QCF Level 3)* after your name, giving the chance to open more avenues of opportunity and extend nutrition and behaviour support to both customers and busy professionals.
Spread over nine months, the course equates to committing only four hours of study a week whilst achieving an advanced knowledge in the complexities of pet nutrition. Studying will include diets and feeding regimes as well as combining nutrition for health and disease and the effects of nutrition on behaviour. Embracing such educational excellence in the nutrition of dogs and cats will give you something to be really proud of and will prove enormously helpful in advising customers about their pets with confidence, which will help cement a long-lasting brand loyalty along with extra profits.
Regular area meetings held in conjunction with your local member of the Franchise Advisory Council help us to build on your personal development plans, where we hold forums to explore ways to maximise your performance and marketing strategies.
You are never alone when you form a partnership with OSCAR, starting with the allocation of a personal trainer to ensure a smooth and effective start. We are with you every step of the way in a business that gives you flexibility to suit you and your personal circumstances.
OSCAR ‘Training and Support’ will give you the expertise you need to launch and maintain your business but you may need extra information regarding finance. There are various options to consider and this information is available through Investment and Funding
