Andrew (Charlie) Sharpe has over 20 years’ experience in the construction industry and the move into the Offender Learning, SEN and PRS provision 8 years ago was a conscious one. Informed during a period of office as a local school governor, and having developed and delivered training within a number of secure establishments, the opportunity to move this into the community was a compelling one. Charlie became involved with the vocational delivery of the One Service pilot 2 years ago. He has been responsible for the development and subsequent evolution of this element of the service into a standalone Social Enterprise culminating in the incorporation of TTG Training CIC.
Mel Hennessey has previously worked for Charlton Athletic Football Club for 13 years. Following a career break to go travelling she settled in Peterborough and joined the One Service as Office Manager in 2011. She was instrumental in setting up the systems and processes needed to work within the robust structure of the first UK Social Impact Bond. She was therefore the obvious choice to help build TTG Training CIC. In her spare time Mel is Akela at a Cub Group.
Tom Deignan worked in the construction industry from 2001 – 2006 including bricklaying on sites such as BBC Portland Place and Old Spitalfields Market. In 2006 he joined a mainstream training provider. Tom has experience training in HMP Prisons and young offender establishments, pupil referral units and schools for moderate disability, secondary education state and academy schools, and teaching long term unemployed learners in the community.
