Step 5 – Further Training

Become a School Mindfulness Lead

The most affordable longer-term path to embed mindfulness in your school or chain of schools is to train up one or more of your staff as ‘mindfulness leads’.

The course prepares .b and Paws b teachers to lead the .b Foundations taster session and eight-session curriculum, but also to become a ‘mindfulness lead’ within the school or educational organisation where they are employed.

Frequently asked questions

Why train ‘in-house’?

Whilst you need outside expertise initially to kick start mindfulness, an in-house ‘mindfulness lead’ plays an important role in embedding it for the longer term by:

  • Running eight week-courses and drop-in sessions for staff on an on-going basis.
  • Developing a depth of personal understanding to guide and orient your school’s mindful culture
  • Tailoring the teaching and practice of mindfulness to your school’s own unique needs. Every school is different.
  • Doing the above in a way which is affordable and sustainable.

Can anybody train?

No. You need to have developed a depth of personal understanding of mindfulness and experience of how it works in schools.
