Update on ART Events and Coronavirus/COVID-19
Given the recent UK Government Advice, ART is postponing all scheduled courses and workshops with immediate effect.
We are not accepting new registrations for all events. Those who have already registered for places are being contacted by the Event Organiser.
Delegates will be offered the choice of a refund or a voucher which they can use to transfer to a re-arranged course/workshop later in the year.
For more information, please contact the local organiser of the course you were hoping to attend, or the ART Events team (email@example.com) who will be able to help.
In the meantime, please keep well and look after those around you.

About this course:
Suitable for those who already teach bell handling and want to update their skills AND for those who have never taught anyone to handle a bell, Module 1 provides you with the skills and techniques necessary to take a ringer from their first lesson to having competent bell control.
You will learn through a mixture of practical and classroom sessions:
Hot drinks and biscuits will be available throughout the day, a buffet lunch will be available for £5 if required (costs payable locally),
- How to teach a skill
- How to break down bell handling into easy stages that the new ringer can master
- About different learning types and how to adapt your teaching for them
- The benefits of intensive teaching
The practical sessions will give you plenty of time to practise your new skills in a safe environment. Working in pairs you will also have opportunity to hone your observation skills and get feedback on your feedback.

Lesley Boyle has been ringing for over forty years and has a wide breadth of experience from multi- doubles peals to peals of maximus in hand and tower. She was a participant in winning bands in the National 12 bell competition in her youth, and is now a Tower Captain teaching young and not-so- young learners. She is also local District Ringing Master, serves on the Ely Association Recruitment and Training Committee, and helps with group teaching at the local ART hub. She says “I’ve gained a lot of pleasure out of ringing over the years and want to pass this on to others. I’ve realised through teaching many people to handle that everyone benefits if they’re taught well – the learners progress more quickly and the band is supportive with less frustration. I want ART module attendees to have confidence in teaching handling and foundation skills, and get that buzz out of seeing their own learners’ achievements.”
