As all of the tour dates on my CSC Training Day Tour had to be cancelled after February's Newcastle leg, a new method of delivery had to be found.
We have spent the last three weekends delivering online training to over 50 CSC tutors, with the aim of having an online task force ready for action from September onwards.
This is to ensure CSC can continue delivering top-quality chess tuition to our schools, regardless of whether or not we can we can physically return to the classrooms in the immediate future.
I am just one part of the very experienced CSC Digital Training and Evaluation Team.
We - together with the CSC tutors - are embracing the challenge of delivering chess lessons despite the extraordinary circumstances of the current emergency.
The following screenshots were taken by Sean Cassidy, Dan Staples, Andrew Varney, Richard Harding and Ferris Lindsay and they give an indication as to the number of people involved and the intensity of the training days.
One tutor joined us from Switzerland and another connected 'from halfway up a mountain in Greece'!
Thank you, everyone!
