Getting the most from your training day — Essential Reading!
Before coming along on a District training day, it is best if you have already achieved a standard of ringing that means you can get the most out of the course. It is better to be prepared. If not, you might find you don’t make the progress you would like to.
If you’re not sure about whether you’ve achieved a certain standard, talk to your tower captain, another experienced ringer or Mike Worthington and get their advice. They should be able to tell you how ready you are for a particular course and, if necessary, to tell you if there is something you might need to achieve first.
We don’t want to stop people coming on our courses. But we know how frustrating it can be if it turns out that you can’t achieve what you’d expected. For our courses to be relevant and to help you in your next stage of ringing, you need to have achieved some ringing skills already, which we set out here.
