Foundational training – Fortnightly

The Foundational Training Course in teaching MBCT is a year long skills based course, including a four day residential retreat. It will enable you to deepen your personal mindfulness practice and to understand the background, relevant scientific theory and ethical framework of MBCT through taught days. You will learn about the intentions underpinning the various elements of the MBCT course, and also about the structure and sequence of the curriculum.  You will have the opportunity to develop teaching skills through practicing teaching the curriculum with peers, both in pairs and in groups, providing you with a solid platform for developing further teaching skills throughout your apprenticeship.
