Learn how to put a course together and how to teach it on this course.
This is one of our top selling courses and exceedingly popular with our students and busy due to word of mouth.
This course is open to complete beginners with no previous experience.
The Mindfulness Course is both practical and creative, with a hands-on approach.
You will be taught a range of strategies and techniques that will enable you to work effectively as a Mindfulness teacher.
Practicing mindfulness is a way to become aware of your mind and of the here and now and the ongoing process of thinking. Mindfulness can cultivate a sense of calmness, to feel less stressed and to become less reactive and more flexible in your approach to life. Mindfulness helps us become aware of our experiences as something we have and not something we have become.
1. Run private groups and 1-1 sessions
2. If you are looking to run workshops and you do not intend to give out a qualification only a certificate of attendance then you do not require a teaching qualification to offer these workshops.
3. However if you wish to give out a recognised qualification, you will need to write your own version of this course (as ours is copyright to us) and then get it accredited by which ever professional body or bodies that you personally choose to go for (they are all 3rd party companies) and if you have a teaching qualification already you can run professional accredited courses and issue certificates.
However if you don’t have a teaching qualification then you are able to take our teaching qualification that Gateway offer (or anyone else’s it doesn’t have to be with us but we do offer it if needed) as you would be required by the professional bodies that accredit your course to have this in place to teach professionally and give our a qualification certificate.

What other requirements you will need if you wish to run professional courses
1. This course enables you to lead your own private 1-1 sessions and Mindfulness groups and workshops.
2. This course does not qualify you to give out accredited certificates, teach children or teach in adult education establishments. These are specialised and require conventional teacher training, however if you have a teaching qualification you are able to give out certificates.
3. For those of you who already have a teaching training level 3 qualification, you can attend this course and with this qualification you are able to write your own material and then teach a Mindfulness course so long as you have the level 3 teacher training qualification in place.
4. For those of you who do not have a teaching qualification yet, many students attend this course first to decide if it is for them. Then if they want to take it to the next professional level they move onto the next step which is the teaching training qualification which then allows you to teach this course.
Which will be your next step to becoming a professional tutor who can gain insurance and teach this course.
Many of our students have gone on to take this course to follow, if they are serious about offering this mindfulness course professionally you can set up as a professional tutor with our recognised qualifications.
You will be required to write all of your own material and get your course accredited so you can deliver your own material.
