Rob has worked in a variety of education settings since 1994, and has a wide range of experience in education leadership. His PhD was for research into public policy implementation trajectory; the study contributes to a wider understanding of complex policy implementation through the identification of political, temporal and hierarchical factors that shaped an implementation process in an educational setting. Rob is an occasional lecturer on the MAES course with particular interest in modules covering education leadership and mentoring. Rob also undertakes supervision of dissertations. Rob has a particular interest in research undertaken in the naturalistic paradigm. When not at the University of Suffolk, Rob can usually be found working in prisons (as a member of the Parole Board), as well as working for a number of professional regulators, for ARU undertaking observations of lecturers for their PG Cert qualification programme, for the TES Institute as a pathway tutor on their SKE course programme, and as an education consultant.
