We should promote the training and teaching of ringers at all levels of skill and ability. We want to devise and organise and run courses; commission and produce training materials of all kinds; and work in partnership with others to ensure this happens.
We are not complacent and wish to redefine our activities sharply during 2017-18.
Our work is varied: courses, mainly for tower leaders and teachers of ringing , and publications are the major themes. Some members have specific projects: others also perform long-term roles.
We’d welcome new members with the skills, attitudes and experience such as:
Communication: inward channels To be effective, we have to establish needs across the Exercise. We keep in touch with our partner organisations (ART, Whiting society etc.).
Communication: outward facing channels We publicise our activities and raise the profile of education in The Ringing World , on the web and elsewhere.
People The Committee needs a total of 8-12 positions.
Sessions We meet about 9 times a year, usually on a Sunday afternoon. This is about 4 times a year at a physical venue and 5/6 times by conference on skype or by phone conference. We have our own mailing list to discuss items, report actions andsound out opinions .
