Teachers are advised to engage in a minimum of 30 hours of mindfulness CPD per year to keep abreast of the evolution of mindfulness teaching and to uphold agreed standards.
The 30 hours should comprise at least 1 day of face to face or live online training such as a master class. Other hours could be made up through reading, listening to podcasts or online material, writing material for mindfulness journals, newsletters or internal documents, preparing and delivering new material for teaching or training, presentations or conferences, attending regional mindfulness gatherings or special mindfulness-related interest groups, or accessing mindfulness-informed mentoring (separate from supervision).
Equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) training is likely to be an important part of CPD for all teachers and is acceptable, including when it is undertaken as part of another role. The chosen CPD should meet an identified learning need. Mindfulness teachers should keep a record of CPD they do and be able to account for it.
