Suitable for those who already teach bell handling and want to update their skills AND for those who have never taught anyone to handle a bell. Module 1 provides you with the skills and techniques necessary to take a ringer from their first lesson to having competent bell control.
You will learn through a mixture of practical and classroom sessions:
- How to teach a skill
- How to break down bell handling into easy stages that the new ringer can master
- About different learning types and how to adapt your teaching for them
- The benefits of intensive teaching
The practical sessions will give you plenty of time to practise your new skills in a safe environment. Working in pairs you will also have opportunity to hone your observation skills and get feedback on your feedback.
After your Module 1 course
It's really important to start teaching as soon as possible after the day course; it's amazing how quickly things can be forgotten and confidence lost if the techniques learnt aren't put into practice very soon afterwards.
To register for Module 1: we ask that you have sufficiently good bell control to be able to inspire confidence in others and an ability to comfortably raise and lower a bell.
