The Training is provided in three parts. Ideally, a participant would progress sequentially, however the Trust understands that this is not always possible and requests at the very least that module one of the Breathe course (Part One) be completed prior to the one-day workshop (Part Two).
Part One: Breathe. The Breathe online course supports personal mindfulness practice for teachers. Breathe provides a mindfulness foundation before teachers begin to teach the Pause Breathe Smile programme in classrooms. Following a teacher’s registration to the Pause Breathe Smile programme, a welcome email will be sent directly that includes all instructions for accessing the online content and the Breathe learning modules. Each of the six modules is designed to be self-paced, with about 5 minutes of reading time per module followed by a choice of guided mindfulness audio practices to follow along with, ranging in length from 5mins to 20mins depending on personal preference.
Part Two: A one-day in-house teacher-only training workshop. The Trust shall provide a professionally-trained Facilitator to deliver the workshop at your school. The funding does not cover the cost of catering for the workshop. However, most schools elect to provide lunch for all workshop participants and the Facilitator. At the very least, we request the host school please provide lunch for the Facilitator as they have often travelled from afar making it difficult for them to bring their own lunch.
Part Three: Online Pause Breathe Smile tutorial videos and additional online resources, which participants have access to indefinitely as long as your school is still delivering the programme.
Part 1 of the Training is delivered under license from the Mindfulness Education Group and Parts 2 and 3 of the Training, and the Programme, is delivered under license from the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand. The Trust’s Facilitators are the only qualified trainers holding the license to teach the Training.
The Trust understands and agrees that they are required to comply with the provisions of the Privacy Act 2020.
