Winter is here and Christmas is approaching!

The dark nights are setting in and the puffer jackets are out... that only means one thing, that Christmas is around the corner. It is hard to believe that students completing our Graduate Training Programme will finish later this month. The students at Quest have been very busy with lots of fundraising events and guest talks taking place.

Take a look at our social media pages below to see what has been happening and where we have been:

PD PLUS Work Experience

Last week our Professional Diploma PLUS students got a taste of the working world within three different industry sectors – Finance, Recruitment and Charity. The students carried out work experience in some of the following companies; Ashwell Rogers, Victory Advisors, Crone Corkill, Deverell Smith, BAPRAS, Anderson Hoare and Cluttons. The 3 days showed the students how different companies operate and have created excitement to get out into the work place, whether it be in Canary Wharf or Liverpool Street. Thank you to all those involved in making this such a successful three days.

If your company is interested in inspiring our Quest Professional students by offering different work experience opportunities please get in touch with Emma Colville

Fundraising events for Action for A-T ....

A huge congratulations to our Business Apprentice Students for raising a whopping £900.00 in aid of Action for A-T. The fundraising event was hold at The Lexington pub in Angel London. They had NUUXS, Kitty Montague and Havelock performing and a selection of amazing raffle prizes; Shay and Blue Perfume, Clothes worn by the Kardashians and Wests, Snow Queen Vodka and more!

Well done to our fabulous PA's for hosting a quiz night at The Sun in Clapham all in aid of Action for A-T. What a great venue and also some very hard questions to answer! They managed to raise an amazing £526.00 that evening. Over 40 people attended with 9 teams involved, this was due to all of their hard work promoting the event around Quest and to friends and family. What a great turn out and hopefully there will be another one soon! 

In the theme of charity events, our second group of PAs hosted a Christmas party here at Quest. The evening involved amazing canapes and plenty of prosecco. The students worked really hard to put together a challenging quiz and also a raffle (with prizes including champagne and gifts from Selfridges). An amazing £716.37 was raised, a huge well done to all involved. 


Our PD students (Grosvenor group) hosted a Krispy Kreme doughnut sale at Quest to raise money for Action for A-T. All the boxes were sold out extremely quickly and it was a great success!

Great idea everyone, your promoting and sales skills certainly got all the staff and students interested in your doughnut sale!
