Meet the Team

The Management Team

Mike Cunningham – Director – A graduate of Leeds Metropolitan University (now Leeds Beckett) in 2013, set up Uptime Technology whilst at University in order to provide IT Support and related services in the West Yorkshire area. With a background in IT as both an IT manager and technical support/installations for a software house, software support is at the heart of what he has always done. In light of this, the purchase of Training 26 in the early part of 2017 was a natural progression in order to widen both the services Uptime Technology can offer, and also bring some real world experience to the training company, ensuring that clients can be assured of getting sound technical advice when needed.

Angela Jones – Office Manager – with over 20 years experience in a customer facing role in the property market, her organisational skills and natural rapport with clients made her an ideal fit to run the Training 26 office.

 Our Trainers

Sarah Fennah

Sara Fennah is a trainer who loves training and learning. Having originally taught foreign languages at secondary school, Sara fell into IT by accident after spending some time helping out at a friend’s IT start-up in exchange for use of their computer and ending up as their project manager within days.  Thus started Sara’s transition from German teacher to IT addict.

With several successful projects under her belt and finding herself a mother Sara transitioned again, this time combining her two loves – learning and IT and became an IT Trainer.

Sara specialises in Office 365, Project, Visio, Project Server (incl Project Online) and SharePoint but also trains in Excel, Word, Outlook, PowerPoint and OneNote.  Sara has been a Microsoft Certified Trainer for 10 years and has qualifications in all topics she trains.

Sara claims reaching all 3 summits of Kilimanjaro via the Rongai route in September 2014 as her greatest personal achievement. This, Sara says, “demonstrates that determination and preparation enable you to achieve any goal you set yourself!
