On 17th March a bell handling workshop was held at the Harry Windsor Ringing Centre at Kineton.
Sixteen teachers training with ITTS having previously attended a Module 1 – Teaching Bell Handling course, along with their learners attended this workshop which was a follow up to the one day course. Also present were three Mentors and two course Tutors to give guidance and assistance.
The day worked extremely well with the progress of many learners being remarkable. One small ten year old started the day struggling to ring up the four but by the end rang up the tenor with no assistance. One lady had her first lesson and was ringing both strokes together before she went home; rather tired!
During the day assessed teaching sessions took place and five of the trainee teachers passed these assessments and were presented with certificates admitting them to the register of members for the A.R.T.
