Chess in Schools are currently in 25 schools in the Manchester area (school year 2015/16) and are always looking for new schools to sign up.
The tutors who work in the local area are all experienced tutors and chess players.
So what would you get if your school signed up:
1 An experienced tutor for one hour per week over a minimum of 30 weeks (probably more if time allows!) to work with a selected class between year 2 and 5 at a time to suit. To maximise the benefit we recommend Year 3 or 4 are the year groups to teach.
2 The school would be provided with all the equipment required to run the lessons (board, sets, demonstration board etc)
3 The tutor will try to make themselves available to run a chess club (either after school or lunchtime), possibly the same day as the lesson, maybe a different day.
4 Tutor support for the children in competitions outside of the school.
5 Opportunity for the class teacher to learn a new skill as well!
If you are interested 'Contact Us' and David Hardy (CSC Manchester co-ordinator) will be in touch to discuss the detail/cost.
We have a number of tutors in the Manchester Project - this is the timetable for just me below.
