Lindsey Sherring - Director of Apprenticeships

I love doing anything that is a challenge or competitive.  Christmas growing up always involved card and board games and the loser had to do the washing up.  I’ve played hockey, tennis and football in the past and more recently competed in triathlon.  My desire to do the best I can translates into my work.  I’m always thinking about how we can make our apprenticeship programmes better.  I love that we have a team of like-minded people at Hart L&D who are focussed on helping learners to progress in their careers, and helping employers to get the most of their employees.

Kelly Ireland - Employability Programme Manager

I started my career in finance, where I worked through various roles at Barclays Bank.  This is where I found my passion for training staff and apprentices.  From this, I then went onto work within criminal justice, where I trained for rehab of offenders through education.  I love to see the results of changing lives of others through education, giving them opportunities through a variety of avenues.  I love my job at Hart L&D as I constantly get to experience new things, which makes every day interesting and different.

Kate McAleenan - Head of Client Communications

I've always felt very strongly about the importance of learning and the difference it can make to people's lives, and I love that this is what drives Hart L&D. Practically every job I've done has had something to do with education - from being an intern at a vocational training NGO in Berlin, to various schools and skills policy maker positions in the Civil Service, and now helping develop Hart L&D's apprenticeship business; education is a constant thread. When I'm not working, you'll find me outside with my two energetic children or doing some yoga when I need a breather!

Frances Ross – Director of Communications

I’m passionate about finding new and different ways to talk to an audience. I love Hart L&D because our offer is so different to any other training provider out there. Being able to promote a brand which puts its business clients and learners – particularly young people – at its heart is truly refreshing.  People are at the heart of our business – we’re great at what we do and we’re not afraid to have fun while we do it.
