The structure of the ART Training Scheme helps motivate both teachers and learners. A lapsed ringer who recently returned was very impressed by the changes in teaching and by Learning the Ropes.”
Lavinia Sullivan, Wargrave
It certainly reminded me of things I was not actually doing and should be. I got lots of tips about what to do to stimulate interest and get ringers to progress incrementally with little bits of fun. The practical sessions were excellent.

The resources that ART have in place have REALLY helped me. Hooray, here comes Module 2!
Jane Mellor, Wokingham
The attendees were still buzzing the next morning and the air of excitement percolated through to our students and other ringers, even the sceptics. We are itching to get started, but patience is a virtue.
Lyril Rawlins, St John’s Bromsgrove
I learnt more in my first lesson on Saturday than in the last 15 years of on and off ringing.

We hope to have the Newnham bells ready for the Armistice Ring-out in November. It's over 20 years since we had a band so we’ll be starting from scratch. The teacher accreditation, insurance and DBS checks that ART provides are key to achieving our goal.
Andy Vivian, Newnham
I left the course confident that I can teach in a safe, positive and efficient manner and in helping a learner to progress with a quality technique. Now it just leaves me to put this into practice!
