Teach .b Foundations 3-Day Training

Teach .b Foundations Testimonials, March 2015

What is .b Foundations?

Teach .b Foundations is a course designed by Mindfulness in Schools Project (MiSP) for adult mindfulness teachers to learn to deliver .b Foundations to adults in schools.

Offering a fresh take on the traditional 8-week MBSR/CT curriculum and approach we aim to make mindfulness as accessible and effective as possible for adults in school settings.


What is different about .b Foundations?

School staff are often frantically busy and may find it even more difficult to dedicate time to activities aimed at their own well-being than other 8 week course participants. The workplace setting also means they are taught in groups with colleagues and line managers.

To raise awareness and stimulate demand .b Foundations includes a carefully crafted taster session , along with shorter session than usual (90 minutes) designed to effectively introduce mindfulness to adults in the school community. Supportive attitudes and ways of relating are introduced visually and kinaesthetically, with the intention of fostering curiosity and engagement. Aspects of the .b (age 11-18) and Paws b (age 7-11) are included which help build a shared mindfulness language within school.

The training course

This 3-day training course enables us to offer:

  • An introduction to the .b Foundations curriculum
  • Development of knowledge and confidence in delivering the curriculum content
  • Familiarisation with styles of delivery and enquiry specific to this curriculum and the schools/workplace context
  • Development of a workable plan to begin to access schools to offer .b Foundations
  • The course will allow people to explore and reflect on their own personal and teaching practice, offering learning relevant to participants’ other mindfulness teaching.


How MiSP supports you after the training

Upon completion on the training you receive six months free membership of the MiSP Teachers’ Network (£90 inc VAT a year thereafter) which includes updated versions of the curriculum and  other extra resources.
