Description

The ECU School Chess Teacher training course comprises two days of interactive presentations, group discussions and practical exercises. The focus of the course is on how to teach chess. The course is suitable for teachers and tutors who want to make chess an exciting and educational experience for children.

This course is being run alongside the 3rd ECU Congress and the European Team Chess Championships. Participants from both of these events are invited to attend the course.

The ECU School Chess Teacher Certificate is available to those who complete the course and pass an online test taken at the end of the course. The Certificate is endorsed by the European Chess Union (ECU) to recognise that the individual has an adequate level of chess knowledge and is familiar with didactical methods for the classroom.

The course is innovative in content and delivery and was developed after a review of best practice in Europe. Attendees give very positive feedback on the course.

European Chess Union

The European Chess Union is the representative body for 54 national chess federations in Europe and neighbouring regions. The Education Commission of the ECU promotes chess as a pedagogic tool to develop the social and intellectual skills of children. The Education Commission was established in 2014 to lead the development of Chess in Schools across Europe. It launched a School Chess Teacher Certificate scheme to recognise school teachers who have the knowledge and ability to teach chess in the classroom.

The ECU School Chess Teacher training course was designed by the leading chess educationists in Europe and is validated by the ECU Advisory Board which is an international academic panel with experts in disciplines from cognitive science and psychology to statistics and pedagogy. The certification was developed following the Declaration by the European Parliament on 15th March 2012 that Chess in Schools should be encouraged for educational purposes.
