I am interested in participating in this research. Where can I sign up?

To participate in this project teachers must normally:

  • Be a fully qualified teacher according to the regulatory framework of the country working in. (Examples are: Qualified teacher status (QTS), 2 years classroom teaching experience, have completed the national induction programme or probation period)

  • Have a permanent contract with the school, or likely to be in the same school for next 3 years

  • Be happy to take on the commitment of teaching mindfulness in school

  • Be available to attend an 8 week personal mindfulness course consisting of a 2 hour class each week together with a ‘silent day’ which is usually on a Saturday and then attend a further course to be trained in the mindfulness programme (4 full days optionally residential) in the current school year

  • Be willing to complete measures for the project

Unfortunately, in this project teachers cannot:

  • Be a newly qualified teacher (e.g. NQT)

  • Have already completed an eight week face to face mindfulness course or the ‘.b’ training provided by Mindfulness in Schools Project

  • Be currently identified as unsatisfactory in their performance management cycle
