This 3-day teaching training course for those who wish to teach mindfulness to 7-11 year olds consists of real-time lessons, pedagogy sessions, discussion groups and opportunities to practise guiding the Paws b exercises with each other.
Our hope for this course is threefold: to equip participants with the materials and understanding of the curriculum to be able to begin teaching the lessons straight away, to continue to support the development of personal mindfulness practice, and to encourage the development of a sense of community amongst participants beyond the 3 days as they go on to work with the young people in their settings.

Each training day will run approximately from 8.30 am – 5.30 pm, with a 9.00 am registration time on Day 1 and a 4.00 pm finish on Day 3.
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:
- The Teach Paws b 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 Paws b course)
- All slides for use during Paws b lessons are available in both PC and Mac-friendly PowerPoint Slide Show (.ppsx) formats. In order to use these slides, you will need to have access to PowerPoint 2013. Please therefore check in advance that you have access to PowerPoint via Mac or PC via your own laptop and/or at the school/organisation where you will be teaching the lessons. Unfortunately, the PowerPoint Slide Show format will not play on Chromebooks or other systems using Google slides.
- We require full attendance on all aspects of the course in order for participants to receive final certification to teach our curricula and related access to all teaching materials via our Hub. This means attending every session on each training day. Where a participant is already trained to teach another MiSP curriculum we will review on a case by case basis. If we are able to offer catch-up sessions we may require an additional fee to be paid to MiSP for the trainer’s time.
Please bring your own lunch as the course is non-catered. Refreshments will be available mid-morning and mid-afternoon.
