13/04/2018 – Unfortunately this course has had to be cancelled due to insufficient numbers of delegates. Anyone interested in attending a M1 course in Yorkshire could consider the Knaresborough course on the 15th May, details are on the SmART Ringer booking calendar.
On the 28th April, Graham Nabb will be tutoring a Module 1 course (teaching bell handling) at North Cave.
The day course will comprise a mixture of theory and practical work in the tower, so that course delegates can put their teaching techniques into practice. As the ART Training scheme is suitable both for experienced teachers and those who are new to teaching, delegates who have already been teaching regularly are welcome to attend to extend their skills and lend support other, newer teachers as they get started.
Because attending the course is only ‘day one’ of the skill development process, delegates are recommended to go away and start teaching as soon as possible to put everything into practice. By teaching at least one new ringer to handle a bell and documenting their lesson plans, teachers can work towards accreditation with ART and consolidate good teaching practice.
The Ringing Centre at North Cave has its own classroom where the theory presentations will take place (directly below the ringing chamber) and as the ringing chamber and classroom were modernised ten years ago, they have an independent heating system and can be reached by a standard domestic staircase (with handrail).
There is a car park next to the Church and toilet facilities are available. Teas and coffees will be on tap throughout the day and a hot lunch is on offer (with a vegetarian option if requested in advance), but this would need to be booked with the local course organiser, Simon Plows.

Course fees are £20 payable to ART, plus local contribution to cover lunch / refreshments if they are desired.
