This course was so useful- the historical background as well as current approaches to supporting boys- an excellent thought provoking course which all teachers/carers of boys would benefit from.

Susan, Learning Support Assistant

As the mother of a rather challenging son, I found this course really helpful and reassuring. Having completed this course we are now looking at strategies we can implement to help support our son (and us!) Thank-you!

Miriam, Parent

Brilliant, eye-opening and helpful, cannot recommend highly enough.

Margarita- Child-minder

We often struggle to get boys to settle down and concentrate- having studied this course I can see how we can change the way we do things to better suit the boys in our class. I think perhaps we have been adopting a teaching approach more suited to girls (typical of many schools) and with some small adjustments we will hopefully be able to meet the needs of our boys better. A really useful course.
