Teacher Training in Surrey / Hampshire / Sussex / Kent

Club Teacher Courses are now Free for members of affiliated Clubs

There are numerous Club Teachers courses which have already been organised in 2019. We are trying to organise some more in Hampshire, Surrey and Sussex.

Free places for affiliated clubs - Some clubs affiliated to the EBU may be able to receive a 'free place' on these courses. They should book on the course as per , and a club official should email the EBU's Club Liaison Officer - - and advise her of the details of the club member 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 Douglas Wright on 07801 989630

Dates for all director training courses can be found HERE

In addition to club director training, the  EBED (English Bridge Education & Development) with the support of the EBU is organising this year’s advanced director training courses.
