Aim of course:
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:
- the theory of teaching a skill
- how to break down bell handling into easy stages that the learner can master
- how to adapt to different learning types
- the different ‘levels of instruction’
- the benefits of intensive teaching.
Who can become a teacher:
A Teacher is a ringer who may have some or no teaching experience. New teachers will learn how to teach in a structured, effective way and develop their confidence while existing teachers will learn new skills and techniques.
Anyone over 16 years of age can participate.
Experienced teachers are also invited to apply who would like to mentor a less experienced teacher.
What is expected of a new teacher:
It is appropriate for the Teachers who are students on the course to have sufficiently good bell control to be able to inspire confidence in the new ringers, their mentors, the tower captain (if appropriate) and other members of the learner’s band.
