Teaching Course - Module 2F - St Pol de Leon, Paul, Cornwall

Module 2F 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.

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.

Teas, coffees and biscuits will be available and a donation of £1 per delegate would be appreciated to cover the costs of these. For lunch, delegates can get something to eat at the pub across the road (The Kings Arms), although food must be chosen and pre-ordered to avoid delays. The menu can be viewed online here
