Do you remember one particular teacher that had an impact on you at school? Who saw potential in you worth investing in?

Educators have always been role-models and advocates in the lives of their students. You know better than anyone that school is not just about preparing young people for a job, but for all the opportunities and challenges that life will offer.

We recognise that you are on the frontline every day, devoting significant time and effort into seeing your students become the most successful young men they can possibly be.

We also know that you are one of the key academic and emotional supports within the school environment. However, you can’t always be social workers and psychologists as well as teachers.

“Intelligence plus character, that is the goal of true education.”

Martin Luther King Jr.

Professional Development

We know how important it is that whole school communities are invested in the development of their students. We also know the critical role you play as teachers and role models, and the impact you can have on a student’s life. For these reasons, we offer professional development through Man Cave Academy.

What happens in The Man Cave?

When you step into The Man Cave, you’ll have a chance to see a different side of your students.

It’s also an opportunity to show a different side of yourself. We’ve seen some incredibly powerful moments where boys have acknowledged the commitment and courage of their teachers. We’ve also seen boys openly apologise to their teachers for the past behaviour. It’s inspiring stuff.

With the support of our expert facilitators, who will guide you through the day, we invite you to participate fully in the program as we’ve seen the benefits of doing so. Educators who have participated in The Man Cave have told us that they leave with:

• The knowledge that boys have a deeper respect for them as people
• An increased awareness of the challenges their boys are facing
• A deeper connection and trust with their boys
• New language, strategies and tools to better support their boys

As part of this, you will receive engaging online resources, before and after the program, that provide you with more detailed program information and supporting resources.

“I now know that I can open up about things and be supported.”

Mount Scopus student

Our goal is to support you in that mission and to make your job easier.

It is not about asking you to do more, it is about prioritising how you use your energy to make the biggest difference possible.

This is especially true given the pressures of your role in supporting academic progress, differentiating learning styles, marking, navigating poor behaviour and managing parent expectations.

And this is where our programs help.
