These learning hubs are aimed at ART M1 trained teachers, mentors and those learning to ring.

If any teacher/mentor doesn’t have any learners, they are welcome to hone their teaching/mentoring skills by booking into any of the hubs below.  These hubs, at the M1 level, focus on basic handling skills, bell control and steps into rounds in a supportive, small group co‑teaching environment.  Subject to the skills of the teachers, hub sessions can be adapted to the needs and progress of those attending.  Hubs aim always to give each learner plenty of time on a bell, with teachers giving well-explained and demonstrated exercises to improve the learner’s bell-control & understanding in ringing.  More hubs can be added subject to demand.

Attendance is by prior request to the host tower.  Please check availability first!

NOTE that if no bookings are received by the host, the hub(s) will not be run.
