Men's Circle Facilitator Training Outline

(January 2024 - Cohort 5)



Our facilitator training gives men the resources to hold space for their own and other’s self-awareness practice. It focuses on teaching skills and principles that each of our facilitators practise then use with other men.

On successful completion, the course will leave each participant with the necessary skills to step into leading their own men’s circle. Our training is lead by our Facilitator Supervisor Lee Stagles


Men’s Circle CIC

We are a community of men challenging each other to be better. Men’s Circle is a UK non-profit, mainstreaming men’s circles. Our style is accessible, plain language, non-woo or spiritual; we use a pragmatic approach to men’s work to reach a wider audience. Around 80% of the men that join our circles have never been in a men's group before.
