Club Teacher Training Courses

Our programme

EBED provides a training course for players wanting to teach in any setting, whether at your own local bridge club, a community or private venue or online. All our courses are led by experienced professional members of the English Bridge Teachers Association (EBTA).

The courses are run over 2 days and cover a range of topics to give the aspiring bridge teacher the skills to teach bridge effectively. Delegates get to practice teaching a bridge lesson, learn about the range of resources available to help you plan and deliver lessons, develop teaching methods and styles, and find out how minibridge can get your students started.
