ART is a charity. The design, development and delivery of all its events and media has and is done by volunteers, all of whom are passionate about improving the teaching of bell ringing. If you are inspired to help ART in any capacity then please contact Lesley Belcher. We would be delighted to work with you.
Rose and Denise are our part-time paid administrators. They coordinate the courses that ART runs every year; helps the delegates to progress after their courses; and supports the new ringers who are registered onto the Learning the Ropes scheme.
ART is led by a team of ringers, teachers and tutors elected by its members. It is the operational management and decision making body of ART, with responsibility for the implementation, accreditation and development of the schemes.
The tutors lead day courses across the UK and abroad. They are a vital link with the teachers as they work through their skills development period. Learning and skills are shared through regular communication and peer review.
Our success is built on the hard work of volunteers who work behind the scenes. Some bring speciialist skills from various fields whilst others donate their time and organisational abilitiles. Many members of the ART Management Committee provide specialist services on top of their management responsibilities.
A big thank-you to all our volunteers.
Financial support is generously given by various individuals and groups who support our work. Their donations help make ART possible. If you would like to join our Supporters programme you can download a Gift Aid and Standing Order form today or for more information contact Lesley Belcher.
As more teachers attend our day courses, more areas have sufficient numbers that they can work together – supporting and motivating each other and most importantly teaching. At its most formal this can be at an ART Teaching Centre. These are our teachers, mentors, assessors and local organisers.
