Overview

A full day with four leading experts in their fields:

Dr Rob Long: Rob Long is a Chartered Psychologist who works independently offering high quality training in schools and colleges to teachers and other professionals who are concerned with children and young adults. Rob also offers individual advice and support to young people and their families - mainly in the South West region. Previously, Rob lectured in Psychology and Sociology before working as an Educational Psychologist for Wolverhampton and then Devon Education Authorities. During this time he managed a Primary Behaviour Support Team and also supported Secondary schools in reviewing their behaviour management policies and practice.

Steve Russell: Steve Russell has nearly 25 years of experience, ranging from classroom teaching through to behaviour support and leading a team of school improvement consultants. More recently, he has expanded beyond schools to include other organisations, as well as coaching individuals.

Whether working with youngsters, school staff, leaders, teams or providing one-to-one coaching, his aim is always the same – to empower them to effect changes that will increase their effectiveness and promote their well-being.

Pete Hrekow: Pete Hrekow specialises in improving behaviour in schools and developing provision for children and young people, who have needs in the area of social, emotional and mental health needs.

Pete has over 20 years experience of teaching children and young people with behaviour needs in a range of settings. He has managed a pupil referral unit, led a multi-disciplinary behaviour support team and was headteacher of a special school for pupils with severe and complex Social, emotional and mental health needs.

Jake Mansell: Jake Mansell is Director of Narrowing the Gaps Ltd, a school improvement consultancy working to improve the life chances of children and young people by supporting schools and teachers to create more inclusive classrooms and address attainment inequalities.

He has worked for schools and local authorities across England and contributes to the NEU's CPD programme. His passion is a focus on what makes the most difference to young people's life chances: the teaching and learning that happens day to day in the classroom.

Jake believes that teachers can make relatively small changes in pedagogy that yield huge benefits for some of our most vulnerable learners.
