Since 2011, Bob has been an FE and AE consultant and prior to that worked in colleges as a teacher, advanced practitioner, curriculum manager (Head of English) and cross college manager (Head of Professional Development and Teacher Training).
He has helped many colleges to implement action learning projects (e.g. supported experiments), peer learning initiatives, research projects and a wide range of other QI initiatives. He has also supported organisations like the Ministry of Defence, Rolls Royce, BUPA, The AA, Smurfit Kappa, ACAS and Local Government organisations.
As a trained cognitive behavioural therapist and hypnotherapist, he helps staff, managers and students to develop resilience, self efficacy and good mental well-being on an individual level or by implementing whole college initiatives.
Bob is a massive advocate of coaching and works with students, teachers, support staff and managers to develop their coaching skills and embed coaching and mentoring across organisations to enhance the student experience and enable staff to engage in productive, creative and solution focused conversations with each other and external stakeholders.
Bob is fully committed to the further and adult education sectors and fully supports the ethos, values and ambition of Northern College to meet the needs of students and the local community and meet local priorities in relation to social inclusion and employability.
