I would like to start by saying thank you to Mark and Rhiannon Pugh for recommending the teaching course to me. I’ve only been ringing for 20 months, so not as experienced as some that were there, but felt so relaxed and at ease.
The course set up worked well. I really enjoyed the practical sessions where they were broken down into smaller chunks to enable me to teach the ringer easier, giving the ringer the best experience I can. Graham explained everything clearly and that made it easy to put it into action with the partner I was with. I actually think that some of the learning ideas helped improve my ringing and the way I will continue to ring.
My favourite session was probably the raising and lowering the bells, something I struggle with and something I would struggle with trying to teach. Broken down in this way, the ringer wouldn’t even know they are actually doing it, so It's helped with my confidence of raising and lowering.
The website was also easy to access and easy to follow - I am now looking at doing Module 2.
Thanks to everyone for the support and guidance, I really enjoyed it and came away with lots going on in my head.
