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 The Present for Schools teacher, and must not be shared with any other teachers, including those trained to teach the curriculum.

Teaching The Present for Schools course

3. In order to teach the curriculum you must have been granted a Certificate of Training from MiSP or an authorised partner, i.e. MiSP.

3.2 It is your responsibility to organise the necessary insurance cover required to teach The Present for Schools course. You will not be covered by TPCCIC or MiSP’s insurance

3.3 The Present for Schools 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 Present for Schools course).

3.4 The simple key practices from the book can be used when demonstrating this work to adults. When doing so, we would request you mention that these are part of The Present for Schools curriculum.

3.5 The Present for Schools 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. If you have any questions about how and where you can teach The Present for Schools please contact us via enquiries@mindfulnessinschools.org

3.6 You would be acting as a self-employed teacher of The Present for Schools, 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.

3.7 This curriculum is primarily designed for delivery in a school classroom, please ask for advice if used in other ways ie tailored for particular situations or online delivery.
