Our commitment to training

Reading Uni TrainingReading Quest has a portfolio of training courses to help teaching professionals to run our programme in their schools. This includes our 2-day Initial Training course and a follow-up Refresher Training courses. Since we began more than 19 years ago, we have trained hundreds of teachers, teaching assistants, as well as volunteers to support struggling children. We also pride ourselves on providing support-in-the-workplace to those professionals that have come on our courses.

  • It is a dream come true after Reading Quest. Reading with my son is such a special time to me. English is not my own first language. I will never forget how loved I felt.
