PQA is a weekend performing arts academy providing tuition for children and young people from 4 - 18 years. Students spend three hours with us, rotating through hour-long sessions in Comedy and Drama, Musical Theatre and Film and Television.  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.

We are looking for hardworking, creative individuals with a passion for the arts to join the PQA family and become Academy Principals in London, Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Staffordshire.

Our Principals choose PQA due to our unique performing arts experience, which makes it easier for them to attract new students, and through our range of opportunities offered, retain them. We are the only national performing arts Academy with a well-known figurehead who takes a fully active role in the business. Our Principals receive full Head Office support - we have experts in every field waiting to help, from advice on teacher recruitment and planning your projects and performances, to marketing your Academy. All of your administration is taken care of centrally, including the collection of your membership fees and enquiries, leaving you free to focus on delivering a top-notch experience!

We do not charge a franchise fee! If you have industry experience and are passionate about performing arts training for young people, then we want to work with you.
