Robert graduated from the University of Portsmouth in 2008 with a degree in Media Studies. Since then he has worked for several different councils and charities in the UK in the welfare and social sectors. His most recent position was in Cornwall helping rural families to improve their circumstances through access to training, education and other funding. This is his first position in a school but he is looking forward to using what he has learnt in previous jobs to help BSKL students achieve their full potential. He enjoys travelling, music, reading and playing football and squash.
