Want to take your school chess programme just a little bit further? Improve your own understanding of chess strategies and tactics? Look no further than this two-hour session on “Going Further with Chess”. You will be introduced to the main ideas behind playing a good game and shown how to teach these to your young players. You’ll also be shown a wealth of resources that are available to help you and your students take chess beyond beginner level.

Suitable for any teacher, primary or post-primary, who already knows how to play.
