Empowering Educators To Build 21st Century Classrooms
We are on a mission to improve educator engagement and capacity building techniques by facilitating cross-learning throughout Quest's various programs.
Since 2009, we are driving key initiatives for the professional development of educators with the broader objective of:
- Embracing learner centric, blended-learning-based pedagogy
- Helping students with self-learning
- Strengthening relationships between students and teachers
- Adopting technology and online facilitation to design 21st-century classrooms
Since 2009, we have approximately trained 30,000 educators.

It is certainly helping students gain more interest in what they are being taught.”
