An integral part of the Learning the Ropes scheme is the recognition gained when a new ringer passes one of five levels building up to becoming a new but competent change ringer. Earning a Learning the Ropes certificate is a rewarding experience, recognising both hard work and success. This achievement can be externally recognised too. If desired, the teacher can submit their ringers' progress to be published nationally in the Ringing World, ART's quarterly newsletter, ART WORKS and here on the ART website.
The ART Awards are a national scheme that recognises the people and groups who are successful in teaching and training ringers and achievement on the Learning the Ropes programme. The teaching awards are open to everyone in the ringing community, not just those who are ART Members.
Accreditation is for teachers who wish to be recognised for the quality of their teaching using ART good practice techniques and following ART guidelines. It acknowledges teachers who strive to continually review and develop their teaching in line with ART good practice.
