Teachers will have the opportunity to learn how to play chess by playing mini chess games against other novice teachers.
The course will teach all participants how to play chess (from zero prior knowledge) and the best methods of teaching primary school children as young as first class the rules using a fun, games-based approach and how to utilise chess as an additional resource in teaching social skills in the mainstream and special education classroom.
This course will be held over 3 nights - 21 & 28 September and 05 October.
