We're pleased to be sharing an opportunity for people of colour in our teacher training program. We believe in the importance of representation in the mindfulness teaching world, so we are introducing a new POC Internship to facilitate a programme of support for people of colour on their pathway to becoming teachers.

The POC Internship Programme will provide an opportunity over approx 10 months to:

  • Gain experience by shadowing a course and teach a few of the key concepts (this could be with any of our associate teachers).   Once teacher training is complete (if not already), an opportunity to co-lead a course with Ginny Wall or Stanter Kandola (will be paid time).  
  • Connect with others through peer learning by participating in a monthly action learning group with others on the internship - facilitated by a Breathworks teacher of colour.
  • At the end of this, a guaranteed interview for joining the Breathworks associate teaching team.
  • Unlimited access to all Breathworks online CPD during the internship period.
  • Access to all membership benefits of Mindfulness Network for People of Colour (www.mnpc.co.uk

To be eligible you need to be a current student in the teacher training programme or have completed training with us in the last 2 years.

If you would like to apply please drop an email to our Head of Programmes, Stanter - [email protected] (or video/audio if you prefer) answering the following questions.  

  • What stage you are currently at in your teacher training
  • What experience you've had of teaching mindfulness (beyond your training, if any)
  • Your inspiration for participating / what you hope to gain.
