AN INTRODUCTION TO MINDFULNESS
& HOW IT CAN HELP WITH SCHOOL TRANSITION
This informative and engaging one-day course is an introduction to mindfulness for teachers, including the science behind mindfulness and how it can support individuals in schools to enhance their wellbeing.
Participants will also be trained to deliver .breathe, our four lesson curriculum for 9-14 year olds to be taught in the classroom as part of the Personal, Social, Health and Economic education (PSHE) curriculum in Years 5-9.
.breathe is particularly well-suited to those young people facing transition from primary to secondary school (ages 9-14 years).
Find out more about the .breathe curriculum.
PLEASE NOTE: The Teach .breathe course involves training to teach the curriculum to pupils, but not to provide any form of teacher training for adults (i.e. training others to teach the .breathe course)
This is an ONLINE course and all times quoted are UK Time.
There will be a compulsory orientation session on Thursday 6th August 2020 at 16.00 lasting approximately 45 mins.
It is essential that you attend this session so that we can walk you through the many features of zoom and discuss online protocols in order for you to get the most out of the training.
The training day will then run on Tuesday 11th August 2020 from 08.45 – 16.30 (UK Time).
Experience of working or volunteering with groups of children aged 9-14 years of age is essential as Teach .breathe is not a course which teaches the classroom teaching and management skills needed when working with this age group.
As an online course, it is crucial that you ensure that you attend the training …
- … in a quiet space where you will not be interrupted
- … having checked all technology is working to a quality that allows for full engagement with the taught course. This will include attendance on a pre-course Zoom orientation and checking session.
NB: Participants will be expected to keep webcams on during the course.
- … away from any distractions, and fully committed to engaging in all taught sessions and activities
If you are new to mindfulness, we would also encourage you to attend one of our online webinars, and deepen your understanding of mindfulness through reading and following the practices in Mindfulness: A Practical Guide to Finding Peace in a Frantic World prior to attending the Teach .breathe course.
