Rob Plevin is an ex-deputy head teacher and relentless optimist with the practical experience to help teachers in today’s toughest classrooms. No stranger to behaviour management issues, Rob was ‘asked to leave’ school as a teenager. Despite his rocky route through the education system he managed to follow his dream of becoming a teacher after spending several years working as an outdoor instructor, corporate trainer and youth worker for young people in crisis. Since then he has worked with challenging young people in residential settings, care units and tough schools and was most recently employed as Deputy Head at a PRU for children and teenagers with behaviour problems. He was identified as a key player in the team which turned the unit round from ‘Special Measures’. He now runs the website www.behaviourneeds.com, is the author of several books and presents training courses internationally for teachers, lecturers and care workers. His live courses are frequently described as ‘unforgettable’ and he was rated as an ‘outstanding’ teacher by the UK’s Office for Standards in Education.
