Education and Recruitment Committee

The Education and Recruitment Committee is comprised of members from all across the Guild, ranging from people who learnt to ring in recent years, to those with decades of ringing and teaching experience. The role of the committee is to be a central hub for developing ringing ability, and resources for recruitment, as well as proactively helping to improve ringing within the Guild by putting on courses and workshops.

Education Courses

The Education Committe runs courses periodically, allowing students to concentrate on a particular aspect of ringing. These are usually day courses, but we have a weekend course which is usually held in September.

For more information about the courses we run, please see the Day Courses, and Weekend Course pages.

The Committe has also been facilitating courses about how to teach bellringing, run by The Association of Ringing Teachers. To find out more about ART courses see the ART webpages here.

Education and Recruitment Resources

The Committee has a wealth of resources, available freely for open days, recruitment days and for talks.
