The Central Council of Church Bell Ringers

There are two points of entry into the Scheme:

If you are interested in the Scheme, but not yet ready to commit, you can attend as an Observer.

NOTE: The modules can be taken in either order and can overlap.  The skills development period and degree of mentor support depend upon individual need.  A really important point to make is that this is NOT about throwing away the experience that people have and insisting on a “new” approach to be followed by all.  What it aims to do is offer a teaching approach that can be safely followed by anyone, including those with no prior experience. Mentors contribute to the teaching and many find that  the sharing of ideas that happens benefits them too.
