ART Tutor, Les Boyce led a Module 1 (Teaching Bell Handling) day course at Broadclyst in East Devon. Five trainee teachers from Devon and Cornwall, along with a previous student returning for a “refresher”, attended. The venue proved excellent with a comfortable meeting space and kitchen in the base of the tower and easy-going bells silenced for the occasion. The students thoroughly enjoyed the day and gave some positive feedback:
“Well-structured day, varied balanced instruction between practical and theory. Very interesting content throughout the day.”
“Today has been informative and enjoyable. I feel more confident in moving the general standard of my band's ringing forward.”
“I've enjoyed my day & found the session very helpful. Just need to put it into practice!”
Practical advice for teachers, right from the first lesson.
