Training Survey (Ringer)

Welcome to your Training Survey - Ringer

Please indicate if you would be interested in the following courses which we intend to provide this year. We will follow up with dates once we have assessed the demand.

First, please confirm you are a human (enter the above text into the box below)!

Ringing Up and Down in Peal


This course will improve your skills in ringing up and down in peal - keeping your place with the others.


The Theory of Everything for Beginners


Well not quite everything ... we only have a few hours. If you are new to ringing and don't understand all the jargon, we will explain it to you. If you want to know about methods (like what a Place or Dodge is) is we can explain. And give you some samples of ringing it.


Heavier Bell Workshops


Do you always ring round the front, and avoid the back bells. Would you like to try them out or improve your technique? You don't need to be made of steel to ring round the back - we can show you how to ring the tenors with skill rather than of brute force. Please note. You will need good bell control and handling to get the most out of this course.


Striking Improvement


Are you forever being told to get closer/hold up/or listen? Can you tell if your bell is in the right place? Can you even tell which is your bell? We have two workshops on offer. One to focus on listening skills and call changes, the other on elementary methods.


Basic Conducting


Can you ring touches of bob minor and/or doubles on an inside bell. Do you know what a Wrong or a Home is? Do you know where and when to call a Bob or Single. Do you know how to keep everyone in the right place? If the answer to the first question is Yes and the answer to any of the others is No, then you ought to come to one of our Conducting workshops.

Teaching Bell Handling


Are you a competent ringer and would like (or need) to pass on your skill to others? We can arrange an ART Module 1 course for you.

Elementary Change Ringing (and beyond)


You can ring rounds and call changes and want to try something more interesting. You can ring plain hunt and would like to try bob doubles. You can ring bob minor and would like to try something different. Let us know and we will try to accommodate you.

Change Ringing


If you would like to move from Rounds and Call changes to elementary change ringing, or advance your skills, please indicate.


Conducting


We will take you through the basics, and give you some simple touches to call. We will also explain how coursing order works, and how this gets affected by bobs and singles, so you can keep everyone right. To get the most out of this course, you should be able to ring (ideally keep right in) touches of bob doubles or minor. You will also need a Ringing World diary (it doesn't need to be this year's).

Conducting


Would you like to know more about how bobs and singles work? Or just how the conductor knows what you should be doing when you go wrong? We give you some simple touches to call, and explain all about coursing order and how this gets affected by a bob or single. You should be able to ring touches of bob doubles/minor (and stay right!) to make the most out of this course.


Please add any other comments (are there other courses you think we should organise?)
