ABF Teacher Training Workshops

The ABF offers teacher training events around Australia each year to help new bridge teachers prepare for their first lesson and inspire current teachers with new ideas. These free workshops, which are made possible by the ABF and the state bridge associations, aim to provide teachers with the necessary skills to run successful bridge lessons and help with play sessions.
