Who are we?

Quest for Learning is a teaching and training charity that aims to inspire young minds struggling with literacy and numeracy. We were formerly Reading Quest.


Courses for Literacy

Our dynamic literacy courses empower educators to develop their literacy teaching or support skills to the full, in order to raise the achievement, motivation and aspirations of pupils.

Courses for Numeracy

Our high quality maths courses develop subject knowledge and provide practical skills in building pupils’ conceptual understanding and achievement in numeracy.


Working directly with children in disadvantaged areas of Oxford, our trained tutors boost pupils’ maths and literacy skills and love of learning, through our specially designed support programmes.

About Quest for Learning

We are a national charity which is dedicated to improving literacy and numeracy in the UK. Our belief in a love of learning and practical tools to help those working with children informs everything we do.
