Hywel Roberts

Hywel is a teacher, author and educationalist working with many schools, colleges, universities and other educational organisations across the UK and beyond. Hywel was a senior leader and AST at a secondary school in the North of England until 2009. He is a visiting practitioner to Leeds Metropolitan University, Manchester Metropolitan University, associate consultant for the University of Wolverhampton and member of the National Executive for the National Association for the Teaching of Drama.

From basic but great classroom pedagogy to developing a ‘blended brave curriculum’ to teacher coaching, leadership development and mentoring (also including TA, AST, NQT development and cover supervisor training) to wonderfully innovative and life-changing strategies such as Mantle of the Expert, Hywel covers – and practices – a whole variety of approaches that make learning real for young people and delivers his work with an energy and a humour that is quite infectious.

Top creative teacher Hywel Roberts approaches classroom strategies that really do switch on all young children to learn, to think, to participate, to take responsibility and to enjoy the whole wonderful process.

Hywel has most recently worked with Mick Waters, Roy Leighton, Karen Ardley, Phil Beadle, Alistair Smith and is an associate of Ian Gilbert’s Independent Thinking. He is currently supporting school improvement in Bradford, Richmond, Barnsley, Sheffield, Manchester, Formby, Grimsby, South Wales, Birmingham, Dudley and Wakefield through longer-term partnership arrangements and is a regular on the Keynote circuit where he offers his own cutting edge view of education, curriculum and learning.

Hywel’s book Oops! Getting Children to Learn Accidentally is published by Crown House Publishing.
