Teaching Course - Module 1 - Newton le Willows


About this course:

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.

Graham Nabb


Graham learned to ring in 1964, and is interested in teaching, bell maintenance and collecting towers. Since taking early retirement from the insurance industry in 2000, the urge to complete the task of collecting bell towers took over and he organized many tours in the UK and abroad. A move to Kineton, Warwickshire in 2007 with his wife Sue Marshall created an opportunity to become further involved with teaching. Kineton were soon augmented to 8 and the Harry Windsor Ringing Centre formed. Graham has taught about 20 people from scratch each year, the centre runs a good range of courses and practices. Graham is a founder member of ART, and past chairman, and has been actively engaged in most aspects of ART's development.
