In March, 2017, Bob's 'Opening Doors to Quality Writing' books won an Educational Resources Award in the best 'educational book' category! This is huge recognition for the impact the books are having on classroom practice, evidenced here:
Bob is a freelance educational consultant who has worked with over 450 schools and has presented his ideas at national and international conferences. All his work supports the search for excellence and he directs his own company of the same name. His books contain fifty units of work across the series and many suggestions and tips to ensure pupils can access, enjoy and love great literature. Schools all over the country are using them and Bob is being asked to give key-notes at many educational conferences. The newer books are companions to the first one, with more units of work and advice to open doors to learning for all pupils.
Bob taught English for 23 years and then worked for a local authority school improvement service before starting his varied independent career.
During 2017/18 Bob will continue to tour schools and lead conferences and there will be a consistent and passionate message that using quality texts can be the route to quality writing and a love of literature for life!
