Quest Training was formed by Jo Frost in 1999 to provide training for qualified speech and language therapists. Jo ran Quest Training alongside her role in the NHS for many years before setting up her independent speech & language therapy practice.
To date our focus has been on post registration dysphagia training which we offer in Birmingham at various times throughout the year. Over a thousand speech and language therapists have taken part in our training courses over the years and we have travelled across the England and Ireland to deliver our courses.
We aim to provide cost effective, evidence based training for speech and language therapists that is relevant and clinically applicable. Within our courses there is a strong emphasis on developing clinical skills and on- going self directed learning beyond the taught course.
Judi Hibberd and Jeanne Taylor have worked with Quest Training over many years and have been responsible for the development and delivery of the 4 day paediatric/ALD dysphagia course and the very popular cervical auscultation course. They also wrote the Jays Assessment of dysphagia which has versions for therapists working with adults, children and adults with a learning disability.
in 2015 Jeanne retired. We thank her for her dedication and passion in teaching so many therapists about eating and drinking problems in children. We wish her a long and happy retirement.
Sarah Hanlon and Jenni Fraser joined the team to ensure we could continue to provide these popular courses.
