29 franchisees take on the role of a lifetime
Stagecoach Performing Arts celebrates as a record breaking 29 new franchisees complete initial training this year to take on new roles on a new stage - and there’s still another 3 months left to top the charts!
An incredible 29 new franchisees have undertaken their initial training with Stagecoach Performing Arts so far this year. This record breaking number comes at an exciting time for this globally-recognised performing arts franchise, with new franchisees having launched their schools in time for the September term.
For almost 30 years, the Stagecoach model has been proven and refined to become one of the UK's leading performing arts opportunities. Franchisees build a team of equally passionate and enthusiastic teachers, qualified to bring out the very best in their students. Stagecoach schools provide a thriving, nurturing and supportive environment for creative learning. That’s just one of the reasons why 40,000 children every week flock to classes nationwide.
Lucy Symon, who came from a mainstream teaching background before becoming a franchisee, will be welcoming students to her school in Chelmsford. She found the training week at Stagecoach’s head office in Walton-on-Thames, extremely valuable.
"The training was a great opportunity to get fully stuck in to the business side of things. Being introduced to people from each department allowed us to get a good understanding of how the business works and who can help us do what. It’s comforting to know that there’s someone at the other end of the phone who can help you with any business-related problem. It was also a fantastic opportunity to meet other franchisees who are at the same stage. We’ve started a WhatsApp group to keep in touch and it’s lovely to be able to share ideas and ask what may seem like a silly question to a more experienced principal!” says Lucy.
Today, a network of more than 300 franchisees operate over 680 schools offering 1,780 classes in eight countries. Through an exciting and varied framework of teaching and development, franchisees have helped to unlock the potential of more than one million students since it opened in 1988.
“Stagecoach are proud to welcome 29 new franchisees into the network – we’re looking forward to seeing what they can achieve. The passion many of them have for the performing arts stands them in good stead, but experience in the performance sector isn’t crucial for our franchisees. Provided you are passionate about improving the lives of children and have the desire to develop a successful business of your own, you’ll enjoy the work and rewards of being a Stagecoach principal,” says Andy Knights, Chief Operating Officer at Stagecoach.
Stagecoach Performing Arts’ next training week is set to take place in October. If you, like these new recruits, would like the opportunity to start a business which changes your life and the lives of others, find out more: www.stagecoachfranchise.com
