HILL AND MOORLAND LEADER AWARD – TRAINING

HILL AND MOORLAND LEADER AWARD – TRAINING

September 17th – 20th: This Hill and Moorland Leader Award Training Course is in the Brecon Beacons National Park with places available.

HILL AND MOORLAND LEADER

Get away from the paths and enjoy our wild places as a Hill and Moorland Leader. This qualification is ideal for walkers who want to learn the skills required for effective group leadership in the hill and moorland areas of the UK and Ireland. It is used extensively by those involved with delivering the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award as well as many walk leaders and outdoor instructors. Hill and Moorland Leaders operate in terrain that is generally more remote than that used by Lowland Leaders and not as steep or rocky as ground covered by Mountain Leaders.
