Step 3 – Formal Competency Assessment

As an apprentice teacher you can apply for formal competency assessment when you have met all of the requirements and your supervisor agrees that you are ready.

Before applying, you will have taught at least two MBCT classes as an apprentice, with regular ongoing supervision from an experienced MBCT supervisor. Your supervisor may advise you to gain more experience of teaching before applying for a formal assessment.

If you meet the pre-requisite criteria and you are judged as competent in all six domains of the MBI-TAC, you will be awarded a Certificate of Competency to Teach MBCT from the Oxford Mindfulness Centre.

Information on how to apply and the online application form will be available here shortly.

A summary of the MBI-TAC is available here.
