Chess for Beginners: Ficheall

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 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 three face-to-face sessions (Thursday 23rd February, Thursday 9th March and Thursday 23rd March 2022, from 7 - 9p.m. each evening) to learn the basics of chess which provide the perfect foundation knowledge to use the Ficheall Beginner Chess lessons in their classroom, if desired.

Some testimonials from teachers who completed the course previously: 

  • “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!”
