We are looking for performing arts professionals with a creative flair to join PQA and become Academy Principals.

There is no franchise fee to open a PQA! If you have industry experience and are passionate about performing arts training for young people, then we want to work with you and to help you build your own business.

The PQA model has been put together by people who work professionally in the performing arts industry and the education sector. This means our classes deliver high educational value combined with realistic industry practice, ensuring our students get the best possible experience.

"I never thought there would be a life after mainstream teaching, but there was! Owning my own PQA has brought back the love I thought I had lost and teaching has become fun again. I wish I had made the move sooner."
Janet Marsh, PQA Doncaster Principal

"Being a Principal is my dream job, I can offer innovative and unique opportunities to children and young people that I only dreamt of growing up."
Debbie Hotten, PQA Warwick, PQA Stratford-upon-Avon & PQA Banbury Principal

"The support received from HQ is incredible, I have never known a management system in which I feel truly supported and listened to as much as PQA."
Mikey Kowalczyk, PQA Cambridge Principal

Your partnership with PQA means that we handle the vast majority of admin to allow you to focus on what you do best – planning and delivering exciting lessons in Musical Theatre, Comedy and Drama and Film & TV with your own team of teachers. Not to mention facilitating amazing performances opportunities for your students, such as their West End debut's.

If you have always dreamed of running your own performing arts academy for children and young people, or fancy a change of direction in your career, then we would love to hear from you.
