Check the validity of Mindfulness training for Primary schools
It is very important when you are choosing a Mindfulness training organisation focused on Teacher Training programmes in schools, to pick an organisation where the guiding teachers are qualified as Mindfulness teachers AND Primary School Teachers, skilled at bringing the benefits of Mindfulness to this particular age group. Our Mindfulness Teachers are primary teachers and understand both the time constraints involved in introducing this practice coupled with the various attentions spans of children of this age. This results in content and advice which is practical, effective and potentially life changing for your students.
Please note there is currently no specified training time requirement set out by the UK Mindfulness Network for Mindfulness Teacher Training programmes in schools. The first programme on your journey as a Mindfulness Teacher for Primary Schools is the Professional Training in the Applied Use of Mindfulness for 7 – 11 year old programme. Further training would include our MBCT Teacher Development Programme. Please give us a call to discuss any queries you might have.
