Association of Ringing Teachers — Teaching Course - Module 1- Marden, Kent

09:05 – 17:00 BST Saturday, 6th August 2022

Tutored by Gill Hughes, and taking place at Marden in Kent, this is Module 1 of the ART Training Scheme, teaching bell handling.

Course places are £20 and can be requested through ART’s online events booking site here:

Suitable for those who already teach bell handling and want to update their skills but also for those who have never taught anyone to handle a bell, Module 1 provides teachers with the skills and techniques necessary to take a ringer from their first lesson to having competent bell control.

Course delegates will learn through a mixture of practical and classroom sessions: 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 provide plenty of time to practise new teaching skills in a safe environment. Working in pairs offers the opportunity to hone observation skills and get feedback on giving feedback.
