Free Teacher Training for Affiliated Clubs

Club Teacher Courses are now Free for members of affiliated Clubs

EBED have published the Club Teacher Training courses for 2020.

Free places for affiliated clubs - Clubs affiliated to the EBU may receive a 'free place' on these courses.

They should book on the course as per www.ebedcio.org.uk/club-teacher-training by calling Lisa Miller at EBED on 01296 317217, and a club official should email Jonathan Lillycrop, EBU Club Liaison Officer, to advise him of the club member details who is attending the course, and confirm that the club has approved their attendance on its behalf. Applications for a free place should only be made if it will be used in the spirit for which it is intended – to help a member provide lessons to bring new players in to the club as part of a club-wide effort to grow the membership and help the club thrive.

Anyone who wishes to discuss becoming a teacher please contact
Meena Samani on 07740 053683 or Douglas Wright on 07801 989630
