22AUT59 Face-to-Face: Chess for Beginners

22AUT59 Face-to-Face: Chess for Beginners Chess for Beginners is an extremely hands-on and teacher-centred CPD course. Chess is a growing pastime in Irish primary schools with over 200 schools now joined the Ficheall.ie network of teachers promoting chess in primary schools. It is an excellent hobby for students (and teachers) for rainy days and promotes a variety of social and cognitive skills such as respect, forward planning, problem solving, decision making, accepting defeat, understanding resilience and developing a growth mind-set when exploring a new skill; all of which are explicitly addressed in the free beginner lessons available to participants.

Teachers will have the opportunity over 3 sessions (2 hours per session; 6 hours in total) to learn the basics of chess which provide the perfect foundation knowledge to use the Ficheall Beginner Chess lessons in their classroom if desired.

This face-to-face course is taking place in Dublin West Education Centre on Mondays October 3rd, 10th & 17th 2022 from 6pm-8pm.

Suitable for Primary teachers, SNAs and SETs.
