A note from the Principal

It’s been a busy summer at Quest! During the break between academic terms, the team continues to work hard, meeting with prospective students, reviewing and updating course content and materials, reaching out to new employers and organising decorating and furnishing work in the building.

We are now in the final few weeks before courses begin again and we are very excited about meeting all our new students and helping them to embark on their career journey.

Looking forward to seeing you all very soon!


A Level results are in! What is next?

We all know that A Level Results Day can be stressful at the best of times... whether you got the grades you had hoped for or not.

Read our high value guide for students who did not get the results they had hoped for… or for those who simply decide university is not for them.

This guide, which is free to download, explains the immediate steps to follow if you didn't receive your desired results, and alternative options. It also lists the key skills and characteristics businesses look for in candidates applying for jobs.


What we offer

Want to know more about Quest programmes or know of someone that may be interested in our courses? Find out all you need to know below:

Executive PA

A six-month programme for A level leavers keen to acquire the foundation skills required to become a top personal assistant, executive assistant or team assistant. Reflects the nature of current PA roles.

Business Apprentice

For those with an entrepreneurial spirit looking to run their own business one day. This six-month course provides the business skills and commercial awareness necessary for students leaving school post A level.

Graduate Training

This three-month programme provides university graduates with the employability skills to tackle the challenges presented by recruitment and working life. It also works on fine-tuning the skills employers are looking for.


Hot off the press

August has been a busy month for us with coverage appearing in a number of publications. For those who missed our appearance in The Telegraph's Clearing Supplement why not pick up a copy of The Lady magazine?  

Even more exciting was seeing one of our Alumni, Katherine Gibbons, being interviewed by Sky News on A Level Results Day. She spoke of her experience and what she gained from her time at Quest.  


Fancy a light read? Principal Claire Granados gives her comment about this year's A Level Results Day and how schools should be more open to recommending alternative options to students.


Looking forward to welcoming our new students
