Bob Rose was appointed as Interim Head of Curriculum for Brockenhurst College’s Construction and Marine Engineering Centre in November 2016 and then as Interim Director of Apprenticeships April 2017.

His transformational approach with the teams, has developed a strong and purposeful team ethos, which has resulted in a significant increase in achievement rates, learner recruitment and learner and employer satisfaction.

He inspires teams and individuals to achieve their very best, and sets high expectations through careful performance management. His absolute focus on the holistic learner experience and outstanding teaching, learning and assessment is underpinned with the development of robust and high quality systems, processes and procedures. I can highly recommend him.

Bob worked as an interim Head of Construction with City College Brighton and Hove for an extended period but was able to make an impact in a short space of time. He prioritised students and the quality of their experience in the college but also fully supported the Construction team using his leadership qualities and sound subject expertise. He worked on quality processes which resulted in excellent external moderator reports and implemented the plans for effective timetabling for both current and future provision, the latter for our new centre opening in 2017. He was an asset at a time of extreme pressure...

Principal, City College Brighton

Bob was employed at The College of West Anglia for a significant period in 2018. During this time Bob has provided inspirational leadership in our Technology Faculty that has engaged successfully both staff and students. He is highly capable in communicating at all levels, comfortable in both proactive and reactive situations and managing to successfully engage those most challenging. Great currency and awareness of key topics and a highly reliable colleague that is responsive and impactful.

I have had the pleasure of working with Bob over the last few months, where he has filled the role of Director of Stem. I would have no hesitation in recommending his services to anyone who is looking to secure Senior level talent in the future. It’s rare that you come across such talent, Bob is so efficient, competent, professional and knowledgeable, any employer would be lucky to be able work with Bob. 

I would rank Bob as one of the best consultants I have worked with.
A pleasure to work with, he earns my highest recommendation.
