Level 1 is aimed at ensuring a new ringer has a strong basic technique. This is important, not only for safety reasons, but in order to facilitate the future progress of the ringer.
Level 2 is aimed at building the core skills that are essential for further progression. Foundation skills should be practiced until they are an ‘automatic’ ringing action.
Level 3 takes ringers from Called Changes to Change Ringing, building up to ringing the treble and covering to methods.
Level 4 reinforces and builds on the skills developed in Level 3. During Level 4, ringers can progress up to ringing methods as part of a band of 5 or 6 ringers.
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.
