Teaching Course - Module 2F - Leominster Priory, Herefordshire
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

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.

Gill learned to ring as a teenager at a Church with a single bell hung for full circle ringing! It was a few years later that she first rang with others. Involved with Scouting and young people all her life, Gill organised Scout & Guide visits to the tower and so began teaching many young people to ring. Young ringers' camping trips followed and she became a tower grabber......open days and outings to start with, then organising her own ringing holidays and days out with other grabbers. Over 6,000 towers later she still enjoys travelling to new towers. A member of the CC Education Committee for many years she delivered the Teaching the Teachers Course. When Pip Penney (a member of the same CC Committee) proposed the forerunner to ART, Gill was keen to get involved, becoming a founder member, and with experience working in accounts she took on the role of treasurer. Gill particularly enjoys ringing quarter peals on both tower and handbells. She likes teaching all aspects of ringing and finding ways of introducing ringing to young people. She has taken the Lichfield Mobile Belfry, on four occasions, to the International Scout & Guide Camp at Chatsworth Park, giving thousands of young people an introduction to bellringing. Outside ringing Gill has a mentoring role in Scouting and is a keen gardener with a love of the countryside.
