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 (events@bellringing.org) who will be able to help.

In the meantime, please keep well and look after those around you.

Workshop objectives

The objective of the workshop is to provide an opportunity for those who are mentors or who are contemplating becoming mentors to learn more about the mentoring process, to discuss the process and to become more aware of what is involved in mentoring.


Short classroom-based workshop. The style of the workshop is extremely interactive.

Course content

  • The types of relationship between mentor and teacher on the ART Training Scheme.
