Assessment Criteria MBI-TAC

Mindfulness-based Teaching Assessment Criteria (MBI-TAC)

Adapted from the Dreyfus Scale of Competence, 1986 and
The Bangor, Exeter and Oxford Mindfulness-Based Interventions: Teaching Assessment Criteria (MBI:TAC)

These criteria were developed by trainers at the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice CMRP Bangor in collaboration with colleagues at the University based mindfulness centres in Exeter and Oxford and also further development by Mindful Academy. The mindfulness-based master’s programmes within the UK, all use these criteria to assess teaching practice skills, and they are also being adopted by training organisations in Europe and the USA.
