Code of Ethics and Professional Standards
The British School of Meditation is committed to training meditation teachers of a very high standard who conform to a Code of Ethics. Teachers have to agree to abide by this Code of Ethics in order to be a member of the BSoM Register of qualified teachers.
The Code of Ethics sets out the principles all registered BSoM Teachers agree to sign up to.
There are 20 principles including:
1. Work competently as a Meditation Teacher to a professional standard that is expected of all BSoM members to preserve, protect and enhance their own reputation, and that of the British School of Meditation and its members.
2. Create and maintain a safe and healthy environment for students and self, at all times.
3. Not have criminal record.
4. Treat all people with equal respect and consideration at all times, without judgement or discrimination.
5. Display or provide evidence of relevant qualifications and experience in teaching meditation.
6. Display or provide evidence of appropriate professional liability insurance cover.
7. Personal and medical information of students must be kept locked, and remain strictly confidential. No personal information is disclosed to any third party unless a student gives consent to disclose specific information, or is a danger to themselves or others.
The British School of Meditation is committed to training teachers of the very highest standard who then sign up to a strict Code of Ethics and Professional Standards.
