The final Level in the classic Learning the Ropes scheme, Level 5 guides ringers up to confidently ringing methods and onto trebling to complex methods.
You finish the end of your learning to ring process by taking part in an extended period of bell ringing, usually about 45 minutes, which is then recorded in the official journal. There are then thousands more methods to discover, places to visit and new ringers to meet across the world.
Level 5 is also split into two pathways, designed to progress on from the pathways in Level 4.
Ringers will engage in activities such as Trebling and ringing inside to Little / Plain Bob Minor to touches and other Minor methods. Also, touches of Original Minor are used within the variety of Minor methods.
Developed skills should be reinforced by Plain Courses of Plain Bob Minor whilst listening skills continue to be developed using Abel. Additional theory elements support learning the calling positions for a Doubles method and for Plain Bob Minor, after which a 120 of each should be called to assess conducting skills. Challenges for the student include ringing Plain Hunt on higher numbers, Grandsire Triples, Plain Bob Major and Oxford Treble Bob.
