We're pleased to be sharing an opportunity for people of colour in our teacher training program.  We recognise that there may be barriers to becoming a mindfulness teacher for people of colour and we are introducing this internship to facilitate a programme of support.

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.
