Covid-19 restrictions are easing, ringing is restarting and people's minds are turning to teaching new recruits. With this in mind, ART is launching its Module 1 Online Refresher course. This covers all aspects of teaching bell handling from the first lesson to ringing with others for the first time. The course is broken down into bite-sized chunks so you can choose whether to dip in and out in-between teaching lessons or do the whole course before you start. In all, it takes about one and a half hours to complete.
The course is for both new and experienced teachers – after all, no-one has taught bell handling in the UK for well over a year, and we are all a bit rusty. It is a mixture of text, short videos, downloads and interactive quizzes, with both ART Tutors and teachers sharing tips and ideas.
It is a refresher course, and is available to anyone who's already attended a
Module 1 (bell handling) day course whether this was last year or five years ago. When enrolling we'll run a quick
check, so you might have to wait a little while for the enrolment
process to complete – you will be notified by email when it is.
If you have any questions about teaching, mentoring or accreditation, then please contact us and we'd be delighted to help. For those teachers working towards accreditation, the two-year time period for accreditation has been frozen whilst we can't teach. Hopefully the clock will be starting again soon, and we'll let you know exactly when this is.
