Teaching Course - Module 1 - Stoke Climsland, Cornwall


This course has been postponed. 

For more information, please conact the local organiser, Barbara Cooper.

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.

Hot drinks will be available throughout the day (local donation). For lunch, the nearby local Cornish pasty shop 'Over the top' is recommended and pasties can be pre-ordered. Their menu can be seen online here
