The ITTS course is growing!

For Module 2 – Teaching Elementary Change Ringing the numbers were 39 New Teachers, 19 Mentors and 5 observers.
“New Teachers” are starting to complete Modules, it was decided that to ensure continued sponsorship from the Ringing Foundation a teacher group should be established .
Last Sunday, 4th March, a meeting of a group of ITTS tutors was held in Oxford, a representative of the Ringing Foundation, also attended.
The “Association of Ringing Teachers” A.R.T. was established.
When people finish either Module of the ITTS they will be eligible to join the register of members of the Association of Ringing Teachers
