Warmest welcome to Claire Granados

This month we are pleased to welcome Claire Granados, The new Principal, who commenced work on the 19th February 2018.

Claire has had more than 18 years’ experience of leadership in education, including university foundation programmes, English for specific purposes, teacher training, and more recently in a business school. As well as the above, Claire has had extensive experience in managing administration and teaching staff, and has worked with young adults throughout her career as a teacher and manager of schools. Claire is currently part of a working party looking at revisions to Accreditation UK Handbook, with special focus on care of under 18s.

We look forward to Claire being a part of the Quest Team!

Trips to Lloyds of London

Our lucky PD and BA students went to Lloyd's of London this month, to learn about the ins and outs of the insurance industry. There was a tour of the building and a presentation by one of the Insurance Brokers.

The purpose of the excursion was to afford our students a chance to explore what working in the insurance industry would be like. Other excursions throughout the year to look forward to include: Bank of England, Courts of Justice and Houses of Parliament among others.

There is no better way to understand the industry than to see it in action!


Love is in the air

We would like to congratulate our PD students for hosting an incredibly successful Valentines Day Mixer. The event was held from 6-8pm as a fundraiser for their future event in aid of Action for A-T.

Half term excitement

Welcome back to all the students, we hope you all had an enjoyable half term break and that you have come back feeling refreshed and rejuvenated, ready to tackle the next part of your studies.

Taking Quest on the road

The career fair season has begun and we are excited to be a part of it!

Highlights so far include: visiting St George's School for Girls and Fettes in Edinburgh, along with Benenden, Cranleigh, Felsted and Epping Forest

Other ones coming up include: Ampleforth, Queens Taunton, Brentwood and Strodes among others.

Guest Speakers

Our focus on practical training means that we can ask a number of guest speakers to come in and give their first-hand experiences. This month we had Abby Calderwood (member of our Alumni) from UBS, Sarah Blackwell (Alumni) from Deutsche Bank, Stephanie Freestone (Alumni) from Equiniti and The Director from Buchanan Search.

In March we are expecting to have a representative from Scott Dunn and HSBC come in and speak to the students.
