The desire to learn something new is a strong one, and there are thousands of people out there with the knowledge and ability to teach new skills. That’s the premise behind Dabble.com a site that allows users to either find or teach a class. Venue owners can also sign up to promote their shop, café, restaurant, hotel or function room as a suitable venue for classes.
The site handles bookings, payments and promotion of the class leaving the teacher free to focus on planning and delivering their class. No teaching qualifications are needed to get involved, and the revenue is split down the middle between company and tutor.
At the moment this is confined to the US, but two things to take from it:
1. Could a similar site be successful in the UK? I think it could.
2. Do you have knowledge or skills you could pass on through a class?
