CSC Teesside Update, Spring 2014

CSC Teesside Update
Spring 2014

It's been a very busy start to 2014 and a lot has happened since the last update.

We enjoyed an excellent and informative CSC conference in Birmingham over half-term and this was swiftly followed by a training day at Teesside's Barclaycard base.

Barclaycard are sponsoring the brand new online chess initiative, Yes2Chess. In addition to the online tournament - which will feature teams of children from eight countries - Barclaycard are in the process of allocating volunteer helpers to assist with the chess tutors in our CSC schools.

In order to get the volunteers ready for action, Andrew Moore (Yes2Chess Head of Volunteering) and John Foley (Chief Trainer for the CSC) delivered a full day of chess instruction on Teesside.

The volunteers were given the opportunity to learn the basics of chess, try out numerous mini-games and solve various problems.

As the photos show, the volunteers all seemed to enjoy the challenging day.

All volunteers are now ready for action in the schools of Teesside!
