Training to teach courses? The teacher membership program then supports you to grow your business in a mindfully sustainable way.

FAQs

When I can I start the teacher training course?

You can start the self-paced course at any time! The first step is to book a 1:1 Zoom call with our team to ensure all details of the training and membership are understood and the location your will cover (for group courses) is agreed before you pay. You can find the booking link on the information pack and welcome email when you register to download the pack here.

We are also on hand to provide 1:1 coaching as needed (included in the membership at no extra cost).

How much is the training course and membership for teachers?

£2450 (inc. VAT), which can be paid in one payment or in quarterly or monthly instalments. Instalments will incur a £100 additional admin and interest charge (£2550 total).

£2450 one time fee

£637.50 per quarter x 4

£212.50 per month x 12

 

Marketing Pot Contribution

Each year we ask that the teachers contribute £600 to a marketing pot for events and PR campaigns. This is to collectively benefit from economies of scale and we will ensure that the areas we spend this on will benefit everyone. For example, if we run our own events, we will ensure these are regional and not just London-based.

The first contribution is due 1 year after your assessment has been passed (ie. when you join the membership). The contribution is payable for the year and is not refundable if you decide to leave the membership.

Am I employed by you or do I set up my own business?

When you train with us, you do so as an independent business owner but become a member of The Mindful Birth Group®. It is comparable to a franchise model where you ‘own’ your local town location as long as you are adhering to the contract agreement and paying the annual fee. Please see the teacher training page to find out more.

I'm a midwife and I would love to use Mindful Birth tools in my practice, but not teach courses. Is this possible?

Yes! Head to the midwife training page for more information.
