Teaching Course - Module 2C - Penrith

Module 2C logo

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.

The foundation skill techniques are covered in the practical sessions, and you then move on to concentrate on the development of change ringing skills using exercises and unusual methods to aid learning.

The transition from Plain Hunt to Plain Bob Doubles and Plain Bob Minor is broken down into several simpler, shorter steps, making the jump into change ringing both more gradual and understandable to the new ringer.

The theory sessions turn the spotlight on developing leadership skills.


  • Hot drinks and bottled water will be available through the day.
  • Delegates need to make their own arrangments for lunch.  There are several local pubs, cafes plus two award winning fish and chip shops.
