Franchise With Us

MAKE IT YOUR BUSINESS TO TEACH DRAMA

The Helen O’Grady Drama Academy provides an opportunity for energetic and enthusiastic teachers to run a business which allows contact with children, school holidays free and an attractive income. The Academy offers a self-development programme for children designed to build their confidence and self-esteem through a carefully constructed drama programme. It can also provide a fun way to teach English as a foreign language!

TRAINING AND SUPPORT

Franchisees are fully trained in all aspects of the teaching, marketing and administration of our programme. Support includes pre and post launch training continuing throughout the first year of operation. In subsequent years, regular visits by a director or senior member of staff will be made. Regular telephone contact is always maintained. Three times a year, Principals attend a training seminar, to cover relevant business matters and to workshop curriculum for the coming term. These days are also an opportunity for Principals to catch up with other Principals and exchange anecdotes and ideas.
