Association of Ringing Teachers M1 Course - July

We have arranged an Association of Ringing Teachers (ART) Module 1 ’Teaching Bell Handling’ course at Coggeshall on July 20th. The tutor will be David Sparling. Here is the course description - I really recommend this day for anyone who is involved with teaching new learners or wants to develop their teaching skills. 

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 

Lunch will be arranged at a local pub or delegates may bring their own packed lunch if they prefer. The day is 9am to 5pm and the cost is £25 plus a £5 local donation for the tower. 

The course prerequisites are as follows:

You must be a bell-ringing teacher (or would-be teacher) aged 14 or over.
You must have sufficiently good bell control to be able to inspire confidence in others and an ability to comfortably raise and lower a bell. 
We expect that you should easily be able to pass the Learning the Ropes Level 2 handling assessment. For more information, see bellringing.org/about-teaching/bell-handling/#GoodHandlingStyle
