Rob runs training courses internationally for teachers, lecturers, parents and care workers on needs-focused teaching, behaviour management, student motivation & mindfulness. His live workshops are frequently described as 'unforgettable' and his materials are used in thousands of schools worldwide. His 'Noisy Class' video is the highest ranking video on YouTube for the term 'classroom management'.

"We were delighted to be able to get Rob Plevin in to work with our Teach First participants. From the start his dynamic approach captivated the group and they were enthralled throughout. We will be inviting Rob back on every possible occasion to work with all of our participants and trainees."

Terry Hudson, Regional Director 'Teach First', Sheffield Hallam University

"Rob has delivered his Needs Focused Behaviour Management course on our Secondary PGCE at the University of Hull for three years now and each year my trainees have not only found him to be inspirational, they have learnt much about managing the learning environment and young people effectively. Rob's course is based on the both the value of building relationships, but trainees can emulate Rob since he models to the highest degree how to behave as a teacher. The course is fun, well constructed and as the title suggests, very focused on positive strategies. Rob is a personal inspiration, but experienced, effective teachers will recognise the veracity of his approach."

Dr Anne Bore, Programme Director, Secondary ITE, University of Hull

5.0 out of 5 stars Calm, happy kids - and grown ups too!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on December 12, 2022
This gem of a book is absolutely gorgeous. Just looking at the beautiful illustrations makes me feel happy and calm, and the activities are lovely too. My personal favourite is The Gratitude Tree, where you picture things in your life that you are grateful for and your achievements and ‘tie them’ onto an imaginary tree with coloured ribbon. Then, you can picture the tree – and all the wonderful things you have tied to it – whenever you are feeling low or need reminding how fab you are. Myself and my daughters have been picturing our Christmas tree when doing it and, as an extension, are going to tie some actual words, pictures and memories on to the real tree so that calling it to mind when needed will be even easier.

Although Calm, Happy Kids is targeted at three to seven year olds, the techniques could be adapted and used by absolutely anyone, as many are based on tried and tested methods. The genius here is that they are written in such a lovely, child-friendly way, it makes them accessible for the very young too. My own daughters are little bit older but love the colour scheme, images and the activities they have tried so far. It truly is a wonderful mindfulness book for parents and other grown ups to share with their little people so they can ALL benefit from the methods while enjoying bonding time together. As an added bonus, there are links to 167 fun activities to do with your kids plus web site references to lots of other fabulous resources for mindfulness, meditation and wellbeing. Final words to one of my daughters who said: "This is brilliant for kids - and I should know because I am a kid!!"

Reviewed in the United Kingdom 🇬🇧 on December 13, 2022
This book is targeted at children but suitable for all, even adults will find an internal calm and happiness with the activities represented.

With 4 sections, there are activities to help calm when feeling fidgety, help focus, feel happier, and even activities to help when struggling to sleep.

My favourite activity is one called “Squish” which I used used with my son who has held my hand to sleep for what feels like forever. After completing the activity he fell asleep all on his own within minutes. I have also used several activities with students at school and have seen similar positive results.

Add to that the beautifully illustrated pages, and heaps of extra resources provided at no additional cost, I highly recommend this book if you have or work with children.
