Route 2: Teacher Training Programme - Train to Teach - 12-month cohort - Saturdays - 09.00 - 17.00 UK Time
Date: 15/01/2022 - 10/12/2022
The aim of this online training programme provides a solid platform for developing your teaching. The course is suitable for those who have completed the prerequisites for the course and are willing to work within the OMC's Ethical Guidelines for MBCT Teachers.
This training also would enable you to register with the international register - ACCESSMBCT
The training is suitable for both clinicians and for those aiming to teach in a non-clinical setting. Once you have completed this programme you will have completed training to teach two MBCT curricula
Professionals working in a clinical setting will be trained to teach Mindfulness for Life (sometimes known as MBCT-L) and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression (MBCT)
Those not working in a clinical setting will be trained to teach Mindfulness for Life and Finding Peace in a Frantic World.
Where we have, or expect to have, more applications than spaces, applications will be prioritised from those who have access to a population and setting where they are actively involved and will be able to introduce MBCT. Specifically we will prioritise applications where there is the potential to engage with marginalised or underrepresented communities and where we might be able to support the implementation of MBCT into non-English speaking communities through training bi-lingual teachers.
