Quest Business Training runs a unique 3 month full time training course for graduates wanting to work in a wide variety of sectors including advertising, event management, public relations, office management, or as a graduate PA/secretary or office administrator. Further roles are also possible.
Students gain professional qualifications in Management awarded from the Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM) and in Marketing awarded from the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM). In addition each graduate undertakes training to advanced level in the MS Office packages.
Quest has its own in-house recruitment consultant dedicated to helping each student find employment. Over 60 graduates completed the latest course and 35% of them had found jobs before the course had even finished. Based on past records, 90% are expected to have found jobs within 4 months of leaving. Internships at blue-chip companies can also be arranged for students. In addition specialist recruitment agencies are invited into the College and each graduate is introduced to at least two external consultants.
The majority of graduates come from leading universities and have generally an Arts, Humanities, Social Science or Language degree.
The course is divided into 3 sections: Section 1 - Professional Training (ILM, CIM, and seminars in Finance and HR). Section 2 - Technical Training (MS Office: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, Outlook, FrontPage, Touch Typing, Document layout). Section 3 -Personal Development (CV writing, interview skills etc).
Section 3 includes seminars in: career planning, CV development, interview skills (including mock interviews), presentation skills, report writing, introduction to financial procedures, communication skills, and organisational workshops.
Most graduates come to us through recommendation. The course is particularly effective for graduates who have NOT studied management or business before. This course is shorter than most post-graduate degrees while still offering a combination of recognised professional qualifications.
Quest Business Training is located in central London, very close to Victoria. Tuition is from 9.30 am – 4.15 pm Monday to Friday. It is a full time course with over 270 hours of teaching/contact time.
In addition students are expected to register with at least one recruitment agency (often recommended by the College) during the course and will time will be allocated for students attending interviews during the final weeks of the course.
Graduates can expect to earn between £19,000 - £27,000 upon completion of the course.
