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.
