Second Chess in Education Lecturer course
This second course will be held on 18-20 June.
Those who gain this qualification (CEL) will be those, exclusively, who we appoint to the paid lectureships of the FIDE School Instructor seminars.
‘I have learned a lot’ WGM Eva Repkova, Chairperson of FIDE Commission for Women’s Chess.
CEL Lecturers will be experts in educational chess (not necessarily experts in competitive chess). They will be trained by the EDU Commission, after an online capacitation course of 15 hours, with some offline extras. This training has a cost of €75, which covers both access to materials and preparation, and the exam.
Those who successfully pass the exam, will receive the diploma of Certified FIDE Chess in Education Lecturer (CEL). This is valid for three years, and it implies an administrative fee of €50.
‘A nice experience, fantastic course’ FM Vlad Ungureanu, national coordinator of Romania chess in schools program.
Certified lecturers will be responsible for running the seminars for teachers (2 lecturers per seminar), and they receive 50% of the total income generated by the seminars they lead.
Applications for the course are open now and will close on 4 June. If you want to apply, please fill in the Registration form for “Preparation of Lecturers”, Your CV & Motivation letter should pay special attention to your relevant experience in “educational chess”, rather than “sport chess” (please check this explanatory document if you are unsure about the difference between these two concepts – https://edu.fide.com/educational-chess-vs-sport-chess/).
