North Worcestershire Franchise
Having been a teacher in secondary education for 20 years, I was wanting to explore new avenues, where I could utilise my current skills, but find a new challenge. Being so passionate about teaching and sharing the benefits drama can give to children, it was important for me to find a franchise that had the students as their main focus and at the heart of everything they do. Light UP has that community feel which stands out from other big franchise schools. Being a 'not-for-profit' organisation, any profit made goes back into the business to help it's students flourish, with a focus on excellent quality teaching at an affordable price for all to be able to access.
I came into this with previous teaching and leadership and management skills, but I had no experience of running my own business. Initially I felt a little overwhelmed by this, but Light UP have continued to reassure me and make it clear they are only a phone call or email away when I need guidance or advice. Although the team is always there, I am very much encourgaed and reminded that this is my business that I too can develop with my own visions.
