ED505E: ACCREDITTATION OF PRIOR LEARNING 30 SM POINTS (MINDFULNESS) (2017-2018)

Last modified: 27 Feb 2018 19:51


Course Overview

Many registered teachers throughout Scotland have undertaken courses in mindfulness, and are practicing and teaching mindfulness. Practicing mindfulness can have a positive impact, personally and professionally, this can be evident in subtle, implicit enhancements to professional practice. Furthermore, some teachers are explicitly teaching mindfulness to children and young people and/or introducing mindfulness practice to colleagues.

As mindfulness increasingly features in the curriculum and in approaches to learning and teaching and as mindfulness initiatives are developed to promote health and well-being at school and work, the programme will allow teachers to gain GTC(S) Professional Recognition in mindfulness as an area of expertise.
