Delegates teach one pupil in their school for at least 18 thirty-minute daily sessions over 6 weeks. The school arranges time-tabling and allocates a quiet location.


Reading Quest Tutor Training is accredited by the OCN (Open College Network) for a maximum of 6 credits at Level 2. Candidates are required to have passed GCSE English Grade A-C (or equivalent). To complete the training delegates will need to submit a portfolio and attend at least one subsequent refresher day.


It tackles the whole issue around what reading is for. Reading Quest has an impact in class almost straightaway. It also gets in parents who are normally far too busy to come into school.




Payment must be made in full no later than 14 working days prior to the course start date. Reading Quest reserves the right to re-allocate the course place to another delegate if fees are not paid in time.


Transferring courses 

The following charges will apply if you wish to transfer your booking to a later course date:

21+ working days before a course = 0% of the course fee

5-20 working days before a course = 50% of the course fee

1-4 working days before a course = 100% of the course fee

The transfer option only relates to delegates who are transferring to a different date on the same course.

The choice of course date must be specified at the time of transfer (else the instruction will be considered a cancellation).

The option to transfer delegates can only be used once, after which any movement will be considered a cancellation. All outstanding invoices will remain due, irrespective of the number of working days notice given for the cancellation.


Substitute delegates 

You can transfer a place on a course to a substitute delegate free of charge.

Cancelling courses 

The following charges will apply if you wish to cancel a course:

21+ working days before a course = 20%

1-20 working days before a course = 100%

Cancellations must be received in writing via email to and must contain the full booking details including organisation name, booking and delegate contact details.

Your cancellation will be confirmed in writing along with an invoice for any fees due. 


The rates quoted within this website remain correct at time of publication and (that is the earliest course date published within) and 90 days thereafter. Reading Quest reserves the right to alter these prices outside this period.


Course dates and venues

Reading Quest reserves the right to alter course dates and venues without liability

In the event of a cancellation where alternative cannot be provided in respect of that course a full refund will be offered.

Reading Quest will not normally reimburse travel or accommodation expenses. Reading Quest is not able to offer refunds for cancellations outside our control, including adverse weather conditions, flooding or industrial action.
