The Courses

Two courses are being offered. 

ART Module 1 (Teaching Bell Handling) will be held on Saturday 13 January. 

ART Module 2C (Teaching Elementary Change Ringing) will be held on Sunday 14 January. 

See for a description of both courses.

The minimum standard required for Module 1 is that a participant is able to handle a bell confidently and safely with a good ringing style, and is confidently able to raise and lower a bell safely (not necessarily in peal). 

The minimum standard required for Module 2C is that a participant has sufficiently good bell control to inspire confidence in others, can confidently raise and lower a bell safely (not necessarily in peal), and has rung an inside bell to a quarter peal.

For each Module, you need to be aged 14 or over. 

There is some flexibility in these requirements and we are happy to discuss this with you. For example, if you want to find out more about bell control in order to improve your own ringing, then it is fine to apply for Module 1 even if you are not planning to teach. Similarly, learning how to run a practice and develop the capability of a band can make you a more skilled member of your band even if you do not currently run practices. 

In the event that we are oversubscribed for either course, preference may be given to those ringers who meet the required standards.
