The Jigsaw Performing Arts Franchise is a successful Drama School Business for children aged 3 to 18 years, offering classes in dance, drama and singing. Jigsaw launched in 1995 and has run several successful head office based schools since then.
Since 2013 Jigsaw has been focussing on recruiting the right people to come onto the team as franchisees, and to date they have 12 schools up and running – all reporting profit, even in their first year of trading.
By becoming a Jigsaw Performing Arts Franchisee not only will you have the right training and equipment from day one, you will benefit from all the experience and knowledge gained from over twenty years’ running top quality performing arts schools.
The knowledge of marketing, staff recruitment and developing your business will be passed on to you during your initial training, and during the regular support meetings throughout the time you are in business as a Jigsaw Performing Arts Franchisee.
This ensures that you launch your new business to plan, and have the helping hands and advice available when you need it.
Jigsaw's bespoke web based bookings and accounts system takes care of the business elements of running your school so you can focus on running high quality classes.
The performing arts school would initially take place as a morning or afternoon session on Saturday or Sunday and managing the school would form the key part of your role as a franchisee.
There is minimal midweek administration meaning you could earn a full-time wage, for part time hours.
The rest of the administration would be dealt with in the week and this would fit around your life. The easy to use web based software system means that you can run your business anytime and anywhere.
Whilst being a franchisee of a business with such a history of success brings many benefits, you are the key to the success of your Jigsaw Drama School Business.
It should not be overlooked as to how extremely rewarding – not just financially - running a performing arts school can be. Not only do you help the children achieve their individual goals and succeed, you have tremendous fun!
As a child Nicola Lander, Company Director, attended a weekend performing arts school in Bristol (her home town) and this was her inspiration. Following her graduation from Mountview Theatre School, she went on to act professionally for several years in theatre and television, both of which she enjoyed immensely. Nicola was motivated to set up Jigsaw Arts in 1995.
Over the years, her belief in the benefits of performing arts in education has been proven time and time again.
The performing arts arena fully complements student’s school life by giving them the confidence and social skills to achieve their full potential in what is now a very competitive world. And now, with two children of her own, Nicola fully understands the benefits first hand.
Nicola is still fully hands on with all aspects of Jigsaw Arts and will oversee your recruitment and training alongside her experienced and supportive Head Office team.
The opportunity to run my own business was too good to pass up. I have all the positives of running my own business but with the support network and existing good name of Jigsaw.Michael Twaits - Jigsaw Wimbledon
