Robert spent some of his teaching career at the Open Learning Foundation - and here he was also originator, commissioning editor, and contributing writer in teams developing more than 80 open learning packages in health and social work. These were unit-based, comprising workbooks, associated readers, assessment guides, glossaries and audiocassettes.

He acted as consultant to the development of a similar Community Care package for the Open College.

Robert has a background that spans both health and social care, and both professional and academic fields. He worked for 7 years in the Prison Department, as prison officer, assistant, deputy and acting-governor; before leaving to become director of Barnardo's multi-professional initiative aimed at providing support for families and children in trouble in the community. From 1984, Robert was chair of the social policy and social work area at Humberside College of Higher Education, later Humberside Polytechnic; and from 1990 to 1996 he was a founding staff member of the Open Polytechnic, later Open Learning Foundation, where he became Head of Health and Social Services Educational Development.

From 2002 Robert took up the position of Visiting Professor at University of Teesside, where he is now based.
