If you wish to run an ART course or workshop in your area then we'd be delighted to work with you.
Running a day course is a great way to invigorate ringing in the locality, helping you train and retain new ringers and build a strong teaching community.
Running an ART day course or workshop is hard work but rewarding. ART has had plenty of practice at running these courses and you will work closely with the ART Administrator and course tutor to make the day a success. As you know the local people and towers much better than us, we will be looking to you for guidance on matters relating to them.
Organise a course so that you can train new ringers to fill up your local towers and help invigorate ringing in the locality:
Group teaching works well – there is more support for teacher and learner alike and it is more fun for all. There are different ways of doing this; consider a well-equipped central venue to act as a Ringing Centre or travel around several local venues to give new ringers experience of different bells early on.
The ART Training Scheme is much more than a day course. To get the best results we recommend that:
The course is a mix of theory lectures, discussion and practical sessions in the tower. Consider the following practical arrangements with the tutor prior to the course:
If you have a small nucleus of people wanting to learn with ART then hosing a day course could be just the right thing to do. When the course is advertised on the ART website our experience is that teachers from further afield quickly fill up the remaining empty slots.
If you and a group of interested ringers want to organise a day course or workshop in your area then contact the ART Administrator who will help you organise the event.
