Dave Thompson - CEO Expand I have held the post of Director since 2004 and have helped to provide financial stability, increased income generation and ensured the development and delivery of quality services. After working in the private sector since I left School I travelled independently across the Sahara where I had time to reflect and decided to enter Higher Education, there I gained a level 4 in Youth & Community Work. After completing this qualification I worked as a Youth Worker in Germany and gained 15 years experience working for a Local Education Authority, where I held a senior level post as Principal of a large Neighbourhood College located on a ‘council’ estate which was formerly the largest in Europe. As my career developed I returned to Higher Education and gained my Master’s in Business Administration. I have a passion for working with young people and designing services which bring about positive change.
