Mind's Mindfulness Teacher Training-Autumn 2017 intake

Source By: City & Hackney Mind

We are now recruiting for the autumn 2017 intake of the Mindfulness in Mind Practitioner Training Programme (PTP), a 12-month teacher training pathway.  Please feel free to pass on the information to anyone that may be interested for themselves or on behalf of others.

This National initiative led by City, Hackney and Waltham Forest Mind and Mind in Salford, supports practitioners to develop both their own practice and their ability to offer mindfulness interventions to others.

This is an accessible and supportive 12 month supervised pathway involving nine full training days and supervised delivery of mindfulness in the second half of the training period. The training is primarily experiential including group and individual elements. The trainers are experienced practitioners who are supervised by Bangor and Oxford University mindfulness centre supervisors.

The PTP provides the foundations for readiness to deliver evidence based mindfulness interventions and for seeking registration with the UK Network for Mindfulness Teachers.  During the programme participants will be given guidance on submitting their application for registration with the UK Network and supported to attain the levels of competency outlined in the UK mindfulness network best practice guidelines.

The attached document will provide key information about the programme, training dates and an outline of the requirements for applicants. Please see a quote from a current PTP trainee: 

“This has been an amazing opportunity to learn within a supportive group, guided by experienced practitioners.  I’ve been able to learn at my own pace and also challenge myself in a safe, trusting environment. I feel like this is giving me the tools to become a skilled practitioner, based on a deep understanding of what it means to support others to connect with Mindfulness”.
