EVALUATION PROCEDURE & GRADING CRITERIA
The evaluation procedure will be ongoing during both TTR1 and TTR2.
During each TTR:-
Seven out of ten days the students will receive training on delivering the core meditations in the morning and every afternoon students will practice guiding the same core meditations in small groups.
During these practicals the students will be assessed and feedback given using the Mindfulness-based Meditation Teaching Assessment Criteria or MBI-TACs.
These criteria were developed by trainers at CMRP Bangor in collaboration with colleagues at the University based mindfulness centres in Exeter and Oxford and also further development by Mindful Academy Solterreno. The mindfulness-based master’s programmes within the UK use these criteria to assess teaching practice skills, and they are also being adopted by training organisations in Europe and the USA.
Our course has been set out to exceed the industry Good Practice Guidelines and Meditation Teacher Training Pathway requirements.
