This course is aimed at teachers who would like to develop themselves and their abilities as a teacher.
The course can either be delivered as an 8 week 1 hour course, 4 2 hour sessions or a full day. It covers
the same 5 concepts as the PEP but is taught in a slightly different way.
This course teaches the core principles of mindfulness and how by really getting in touch with ourselves
we can learn how to recognise negative thought patterns and emotions and then decide how best to
deal with them. This also goes into some detail about relationships with others and is made relevant to
strengthening the teacher/ pupil relationship. Stress is covered in careful detail and participants are
taught how to recognise and anticipate their stress triggers and then avoid them being so debilitating.
The course aims to assist an individual in becoming more confident as a person and as a teacher and
gives them the tools that they need to aspire to be the best that they can be.
This course gives an overview of some of the techniques covered in the full course and then
concentrates on practical strategies to use in the classroom. The techniques are mostly Neuro Linguistic
programming techniques but with an embedded understanding of mindfulness. This course is a 2 hour
course and could be run over 2 sessions or in 1 full session.
Mindfulness: Deliberately paying attention to things we normally would not even notice, and
becoming aware of our present moment experience as it arises, non- judgementally, with
kindness and compassion.
