This course is for educators asking themselves questions about how to get the best out of the boys they teach.
Modern definitions of masculinity may be changing, but there are plenty of boys caught up in behaviours that lead to wellbeing issues and disengagement from school.
This course examines these issues, the reasons behind them and offers practical suggestions for working with boys.
Classroom teachers, coeducational teachers, teachers in boys schools, pastoral care and wellbeing staff, year level co-ordinators, Heads of House and so on
