The Education Committee consists of 2 representatives elected by each District, and a representative from the Gordon Halls Ringing Centre. Our remit is to promote the recruitment and training of bell ringers, and to extend the appreciation of bell ringing among the public (Association Objectives 2 and 5).

The committee can assist towers by:

  • Offering our Wombel and other resources to aid recruitment
  • Advising on techniques for training of ringers
  • Training teachers by promoting the Association of Ringing Teachers’  Integrated Teacher Training Scheme
  • Providing workshops at local towers

The committee also organises courses and workshops for improving ringing skills at a more advanced level. For details see the calender.

For further information about ringing contact one of the committee members for your District, or else the Chairman.

  • Conducting for Beginners

    11th November 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
    To be confirmed

    A workshop for those new to conducting. We will explain coursing order and how this gets affected by bobs and singles (mainly as a respite from ringing), but most of the day we hope to be able to ring in and call simple touches of bob doubles and minor. (Ideally you should be confident ringing such touches).
    A poster and more information will be available once a venue is confirmed. If you are interested, please contact CEdcom2@derbyda.org.uk.
