These learning hubs are aimed at ART M1 trained teachers, mentors and their learners.

If any teacher/mentor doesn’t have any learners but wishes to hone their teaching/mentoring skills, you are welcome to attend.  The focus is on basic handling skills, bell control and early steps into rounds in a supportive co‑teaching environment.  To ensure each learner gets plenty of time on a bell and each teacher/mentor gets time to explain and demonstrate the intricacies of controlling a bell, attendance is by prior notification to the host tower to ensure small groups.  NOTE that if no bookings are received by the host, the hub(s) will not be run. 

The dates for January-March 2024 are shown below:

If these learning hubs prove successful, more dates and venues can be added as required.  As our learners progress, they will need ongoing support and encouragement.  If any teachers/mentors wish to undertake the ART M2 level courses – M2F from Rounds to Plain Hunt and M2C from Plain Hunt to Methods – please let me know.
