This Programme is an alternative to A Levels and will appeal to any GCSE leaver looking for a practical, yet supportive, route into the business world. It aims to equip students with core business, IT and life skills, easing them gently into the world of work during their first year. Year two builds upon the foundation year, with less emphasis on crucial life skills and a greater focus on the different industry sectors that students are likely to begin their careers in.
Often chosen as an alternative to university by A Level leavers, the Professional Diploma Programme provides students with a fantastic insight and training in areas such as PR, events, finance, how to use a MAC, sales, marketing, HR, business law and much more. This 9 month programme is the ideal way for students to gain the confidence, knowledge and skills required to join an established working team.
The Business Apprentice Programme tends to be chosen by those individuals who see themselves as future leaders, or those with an entrepreneurial spirit looking to run their own business one day. The programme has a strong emphasis on marketing, advertising and PR, delivering a business pitch, leadership & management, events and finance. Internships may be arranged by the Quest team, or through the help of valuable external sources, once students have successfully completed their training.
The Executive Personal Assistant Programme is extremely popular with those looking to become Executive Assistants, PAs and team assistants. Support structures are crucial in the day-to-day running of any business and, as our recruitment experts will tell you, are always in high demand.

The Graduate Training Programme is ideal if you are looking for the practical skills and business acumen to back up your degree discipline, especially if you come from a non-business-related degree.
