ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY TRAINER

The eQS Company

When we think about education, we think about the wonderment of learning and the endless opportunities in life it can bring. But what if there are barriers to learning?

Assistive technology (AT) is designed to improve an individual’s ability to access the world around them, such as accessing learning in education, the workplace and the wider world.

eQuality Solutions is a group of sister companies that share a passion for supporting inclusivity and neurodiversity with personalised learning solutions.

This passion stems from our founder, Chris Quickfall, who discovered he was dyslexic when he was 21, whilst studying at university. Having experienced the equipment and services available first-hand, Chris’ desire to improve the quality of support for all higher education students receiving Disabled Students Allowance (DSA), fuelled the launch of our three companies.

eQuality Solutions is made up of Invate, an AT equipment and software provider, e-Quality Learning, a one-to-one AT training provider, and Learning Labs, an AT e-learning portal.

Our goal is to help people to get the most out of their assistive technology (AT), and therefore, achieve their full potential in life.
