Rob Butler was a special school science teacher for twenty years, with the last six as a deputy head. He’s worked with mainstream schools as an advanced skills teacher (AST) and has also been on the TES science panel. Rob stepped down from teaching at Christmas to reduce his hours and go part-time. He’s now a field officer the Association for Science Education (ASE) and sits on their 11–19 committee, keeping his finger on the pulse of science education.
Rob is also the secondary lead for two of his local science learning partnerships and writes resources for lower attaining students for a major publisher. Rob also blogs at his own website, fiendishlyclever, and is often recognised by teachers who have used his resources in their own lessons.
