An Evening with Quest!

Join us for an evening here at Quest filled with bubbles and nibbles! 

We're opening our doors to both our past and prospective students on Wednesday 30th August from 6.30 pm onwards.

This will be the perfect opportunity for new students to find out first-hand from Alumni how Quest helped them during their time here and beyond! 

Please do get in touch with Alice on info@questprofessional.co.uk to find out more information and R.S.V.P. 

A Student's point of view...

Why Quest?

After completing my A-Levels, I decided to decline my University offers and to attend Quest Professional, to complete the Professional Diploma Programme. Looking back now I can honestly say that it was the best decision I have ever made. A few family friends had recommended Quest and I am so glad that I took their advice.

Not only did attending Quest enable me to learn every practical skill that I will possibly need for the work place, it also meant that I met an incredible group of people who I know I will be friends with for life. I also got to work with amazing, supportive trainers who were there for me every step of the way.

Quest is like a key to the City, it’s a fast pass into London Life. It prepares you for every aspect of work. For me, Quest meant I had to get used to commuting, working longer hours and learning how to cope under pressure. Quest has the ability to open up so many doors and the possibilities for a role are endless.

Quest has given me the confidence to excel as an independent individual. The lessons that I undertook while at Quest were all equally valuable. The Careers sessions affirmed my decision to work within the corporate sector. The careers support that is given to you throughout the course is amazing, whether it's helping you to improve your CV, creating your LinkedIn profile, or even just a quick chat!

Every trainer goes above and beyond to make sure that you benefit from the course and learn as much as you possibly can. All the trainers are highly professional individuals who are so knowledgeable in the field that they are teaching. There is no better way to be taught Finance than by an Accountant, there is no better way to be taught Law than by a Lawyer.

The future's bright!

Whilst at Quest, the Careers Team secured me a two-week work experience placement at KPMG. I had always expressed an interest to work in one of the ‘Big Four’ Accountancy firms, so yet again Quest exceeded my expectations!

This work experience affirmed my decision to work within the corporate field, and I am now waiting to start my new role in September. I can honestly say that the 9 months flies by and it is vital that you make the most of it, I truly believe you get what you put in.  As long as you have the motivation to succeed and you want to work hard you will most certainly reap in the rewards.

Emma, Natalie & Alice continue to be highly supportive throughout the whole job searching process. They are always on hand 24/7 to reassure me and guide me through the stepping stones of reaching my first job. I can’t thank Quest enough and I am honestly so pleased that I decided to go against the traditional system of University. I feel that attending Quest has enabled me to gain a huge competitive advantage over my peers at University.
