Please read carefully and print off a copy of this agreement between you and Mindfulness in Schools Project (MiSP) for future reference. By applying and completing the Teach .b training course you are confirming your agreement to be bound by these terms and conditions.
1.1 At all times, MiSP remains the owner of the intellectual property of the .b course and the accompanying course materials. You may not modify, adapt, copy, reproduce, re-publish, translate, make available, disseminate or distribute in anyway any of the materials provided on the course and made available online via the MiSP Hub, other than as covered in 1.3.
1.2 No course or course materials, nor any part thereof may be reproduced, stored or transmitted in any form or by any means without the prior written permission of MiSP.
1.3 You may seek permission from MiSP to translate the materials for your own personal teaching and on acceptance of the terms and conditions laid out in MiSP’s Personal Translation Agreement.
The course content and teaching materials
2. Copyright of the course belongs to MiSP.
2.1 Using the materials provided:
i) Materials must not be copied or shared except for teaching by MiSP certified teachers.
ii) Materials must not be amended or adapted without the specific permission of, and in collaboration with, MiSP.
2.2 The course includes six months complimentary membership of the MiSP Hub, from where all teaching materials can be downloaded, along with other resources. At the end of the six months, membership will be available at a cost of £90 inc VAT per annum. The annual fee will be reviewed each year.
You are still able to teach the course if you are not a member of the Hub but you will not have access to any new materials or any other updated resources in the Hub.
Your membership of the MiSP Hub is exclusively for you as a trained .b teacher, and must not be shared with any other teachers, including those trained to teach the curriculum. This is the case even if your employer or someone else had paid for you to train to teach .b or to have ongoing access to the Hub.
Teaching the .b course
3. In order to teach the curriculum you must have been granted a Certificate of Training from MiSP or an authorised partner.
3.1 You will be acting as an independent teacher, any publicity materials should make it clear you are trained by MiSP or a partner of MiSP and that you are not an employee of MiSP.
3.2 It is your responsibility to organise the necessary insurance cover required to teach the .b course. You will not be covered by MiSP’s insurance.
3.3 The Teach .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 .b course).
3.4 The simple key practices FOFBOC, Beditation, 7/11 are the only practices that may be taught to students and colleagues outside of the curriculum. When doing so, we would request you mention that these are part of MiSP’s .b curriculum.
3.5 The .b curriculum must not be taught as a public course i.e. freely advertised for any interested party to attend. Background knowledge of the pupils you teach is essential to ensuring their safety and wellbeing. Schools or educational organisations provide the necessary framework of policies and procedures to safeguard children in a way which a public course would not. To find out more about how and where you can teach .b please refer to the FAQs.
3.6 You would be acting as a self-employed teacher of .b, so we are not in a position to instruct you on what to charge. Of course, it will vary from region to region and according to the size of group, type of school, etc, all we would ask is that the fee you charge is reasonable and affordable for all schools. This is key to the integrity of the work we do, and our aim to increase the accessibility and sustainability of mindfulness provision within schools’
Marketing the .b course
4. MiSP is the owner of the intellectual property of the .b course and the accompanying course materials, please refer to clause 1.1.
4.1 You should make it clear in all publicity materials i.e. websites, flyers and on social media that although you have been trained by MiSP or a partner of MiSP you are not an employee of MiSP.
4.2 A ‘Trained to Teach’ logo is available for use on your website and in publicity materials. This should not be modified or altered in any way.
MiSP and .b are trademarked logos and cannot be used without prior written permission from MiSP, apart from .b materials provided in the Hub.
4.3 In marketing and publicising the .b course, MiSP requests you acknowledge that all materials, including the publicity materials made available on the Hub, belong to Mindfulness in Schools Project and link any information provided to our website www.mindfulnessinschools.org
