Launch Your Own Sparks Film School. Ignite Imaginations and Inspire Creativity…
Do you want to share your passion with the next generation? Are you looking for a flexible, part-time or full-time job?
Due to Sparks’ highly successful growth, we are now looking for motivated, creative and enthusiastic people to run their own Sparks film school franchises in their local areas.
Sparks offer unique and fun opportunities for children and teenagers to develop skills in filmmaking. Our popular and practical classes engage young filmmakers and help to inspire confidence, creativity and imagination.
Over the last few years, demand for classes has soared. We have gone from one small film school (launched in 2010) to six growing locations. We’re inundated with requests from parents around the UK to start up nearby. With our hands full running six busy schools, we are now offering this proven business model to people passionate about inspiring young people to achieve their potential.
Discover how you can…
As a Sparks Franchisee, you’ll join a family of talented, creative people who are passionate about helping children to realise their ideas and develop their skills.
You might be looking for a change of direction, or the chance to work flexibly around your family. You might want to start a part time business where you can plant some financial seeds for the future, or you might simply want to get out of the 9-5 grind and have some fun.
We provide full training, so don’t worry if you haven’t taught before, but it’s important that you have some experience of children and young people
Full training on all aspects of your business is provided as part of the franchise package. You’ll learn creative skills in film production, including photography skills and video editing. You’ll also learn how to deliver our unique and engaging programme, as well as how to grow your business, following our proven strategies.
We’ll also support you every step of the way, with ongoing support from our experienced team. We’ll provide you with all the tools you’ll need to make it a huge success.
Based on part-time hours, you can expect to earn £30,000 – £50,000 per year, depending on the number of classes you deliver. The more time you have to dedicate towards your franchise, the more growth you can expect.
Franchises start from £7,500 initial investment, which includes everything you’ll need to launch your business. This includes:
As your business grows, you’ll also be building its re-sale value, which you can realise if you choose to sell.
