Teaching Centres and Hubs

These partnerships offer new and developing ringers:

  • A guarantee that you will be taught well using a progressive, modern teaching scheme. Learning will be structured and fun and progress accelerated.
  • Teaching that is tailored to your needs and offers lots of varied ringing opportunities.
  • A sense of camaraderie because you are learning together and the social life associated with a wider group.
  • Assurance that all teachers will be following ART safeguarding policies and guidelines.
  • An environment that is well-organised and well-resourced.

And teachers:

  • You will be teaching as a team with like-minded teachers. Your hard work and dedication will lead to the best results - and it will be fun.
  • You won't have to do everything yourself - you're part of a team.
  • The concept and way of working of an official partnership with ART strongly appeals to the expectations of new ringers.
  • ART will support your safeguarding and insurance needs.
  • ART will promote you to new ringers on the ART website.
