Kevin Cobane – West Midlands

  • Regional Rep

I have been a Teacher for 26 years in Primary Schools across the West Midlands and a reader for as long as I can remember. During my career I have held the positions of Literacy Co-ordinator, Assistant Headteacher, Deputy Headteacher and Headteacher. I have also worked as a Senior Lecturer in Primary Education at Birmingham City University. I currently work at The University of Birmingham School with Students in Years 7, 8 and 9 to support and develop their Literacy and Numeracy skills. I am an avid reader, a massive fan of Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials series and enjoy sharing a love of books with my classes and colleagues. I am also head of Middle Grade and Young Adult Fiction at VIP Reading, have created a number of resources to the Reading Realm and have had the privilege of being on the Judging Panels for the UKLA Book Awards and EmpathyLab’s Read for Empathy List. I am passionate about the importance of Reading for Pleasure and exploring how it can be promoted in Schools and Communities.
