The course is brilliant! It covers all the aspects of teaching chess in schools and delivers many useful practical guidelines and ideas. I love it also because its mission totally reflects my core belief about teaching chess! And that is to help children develop social, cognitive and transferable skills for a successful start in life. The course is a fantastic way for teachers to improve their educating capabilities. Thank you for the knowledge shared! Looking forward to seeing you again soon!

Great, amazing insights. I was skeptical to learn something new (due to being a chess coach + teacher) but it was the shared experience that was outstanding. Thank you all 3, Jesper, John and Brigitta for the course. I hope I can spread your knowledge for the benefit of the children.

Thanks to the team that organized this 2-day event. I have gained valuable insight. It is a structured course that gave me food for thought and new perspectives on seeing the children’s needs. Thank you for your efforts!

And how did they rate the presenters? We got 💯% for “excellent” presentation skills. 🤗Thank you!

We want to thank the latest SMART graduates for their feedback and contribution, sharing their knowledge and ideas at the latest ECU101 – The SMART Method to Teach Chess training course. It was a great pleasure working with you and getting to know you better. Besides learning about new teaching techniques and classroom strategies, we always see great value in providing a platform where fellow educators can meet like-minded individuals from different countries with their unique perspectives. This is the additional benefit of these training courses; the opportunity to connect with a diverse group of teachers and learn from one another. We are no longer isolated practitioners but part of a dynamic community committed and dedicated to using chess as an educational tool.

👍Thank you for the many useful conversations and this collaborative journey towards personal and professional development.

Wishing you a fruitful journey in using chess as an educational tool to make a positive impact!
