Our Mountain Leader Training Awards are run by our partner Pete Goldsmith MIC

We can generally run bespoke courses for schools who have a minimum of four of their staff who wish to train/qualify together. Although, if you have fewer than four, it is worth enquiring as we may also have space for individuals to join courses already being run for others

Contact us for details and costs.

The Lowland Leader Award
This new award scheme has been designed for people who wish to lead groups on day walks in lowland countryside and woodland in summer conditions. The scope and accessibility for this scheme makes it very achievable and appropriate for Duke of Edinburgh leaders. It is a nationally recognised award scheme that opens up a natural pathway to other awards and qualifications for leading and working in the outdoors.

The Hill and Moorland Leader Award
The Hill and Moorland Leader award is designed for people who want to lead groups in hill and moorland areas of the UK and Ireland. This award is a wonderful opportunity to learn leadership skills required to feel confident about taking people walking on non-mountainous terrain.

In a previous life this award was called the Walking Group Leader. The 'overnight experience' element of the WGL has been removed and there is now a separate Expedition Skills Module which can be 'bolted on' to the Hill and Moorland Leader (or indeed the Lowland Leader) if you want to increase the scope of your award to include multi-day expeditions.

Mountain Leader Award
The Mountain Leader scheme is designed for people who want to lead groups in the mountains, hills and moorlands of the UK and Ireland. 
The prerequisites for registration are as follows:

It is unlikely any one school will have enough candidates to fill a training or assessment course so we run modular courses you can join.

Because our courses are modular it allows you to complete the programe over a series of weekends
