Teaching Course - Module 2F - Richmond, Yorkshire
About this course:
This course shows new and experienced teachers how to support their students and develop the necessary foundation skills for good ringing and then move forward to ringing changes.
You will learn through a mixture of practical and classroom sessions
- Foundation skills
- Call Changes
- Kaleidoscope ringing
- Standing behind
- Plain Hunting
The practical exercises approach learning in small structured steps and are delivered in a way that is entertaining for the new ringer whilst the theory sessions cover foundation skills, teaching theory, running practices, team building and how to motivate and retain your ringers.
Module 2F practical sessions have a greater focus on the foundation skills – how to teach call changes, an exploration of kaleidoscope ringing, and different ways to introduce covering and Plain Hunt.
Theory sessions include the development of coaching skills.
Delegates are invited to either make their own arrangements for lunch, or the local course organiser is happy to place an order with a nearby sandwich shop if required.
This course is now open for general bookings.

Christine learned to ring in 1981 at Christ Church, North Shields and it’s safe to say she was smitten from the first lesson. “How hard can it be?”, quickly became a challenge to get it right. A house move to Sunderland soon meant that she was ringing at 5 practice nights per week, with weddings on Saturdays and service ringing on Sundays. A wide variety of methods (and bells) as well as a keen nucleus of local ringers who took her under their wing, gave her a good grounding in basic methods as well as the chance to progress to more complex methods when appropriate.
