Learning the Ropes is a progressive learning scheme for bell ringers. It is designed to use milestones to enable ringers to progress faster and further. It has five Levels from basic handling to change ringing and includes assessment by Quarter Peal.
Learning the Ropes is a structured, progressive scheme to learn the art of bell ringing – similar to music grades or karate belts.
Ringers get an individual Personal Progress Logbook and at the completion of each Level are presented with a certificate of achievement from the Association of Ringing Teachers.
The Scheme is split into five stages, or Levels. The Levels span from basic handling to change ringing and includes assessment by Quarter Peal, with skills progressive taught.
‘Learning the Ropes +’ is an awards scheme for new and experienced ringers alike.
It is provided to encourage and to make provision for those ringers who have completed the Learning the Ropes scheme and want to progress further.
The 50/50 CLUB is a way to support the charity that provides Learning the Ropes and have the opportunity to win cash prizes for yourself. It is open to all Ringers registered on SmART Ringer.
