FACE TO FACE: CHESS FOR BEGINNERS: Ficheall

FACE TO FACE: CHESS FOR BEGINNERS: Ficheall

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.

  • “A course that when completed you can actually say you have learned an entire new skill! Amazing!”
  • “This is a fun course!”
  • “Teach your students good sportsmanship without PE!”
