Lowland Leader Award (Training)

  • 160 British pounds
  • Ashdown Forest, West Sussex

Service Description

This course is non-residential. The Lowland Leader qualification has been designed for people who wish to lead groups on day walks in lowland countryside and woodland in summer conditions. The majority of the UK and Ireland is made up of this type of terrain so you'll never be short of places to go walking. This is one of our favourite courses to deliver! People who join us are often enthusiastic to learn more about the outdoors, enthusiasm that they then wish to share with like-minded others throughout their experience. The scheme often leads you through local, outstanding terrain, venturing through farmland, coastal pathways, woodland, forests and country parks. We love to share our knowledge, passion and experiences with you - This far exceeds ‘how to read a map’ or ‘understand the basics of a compass’. We will introduce you to fascinating facts around fauna and flora, give you confidence on how to manage and lead others safely, and ignite/affirm knowledge and respect for the outdoors. This course is ideal for those just starting out on the ‘walking leader’ journey irrespective of whether for personal or professional purposes. This scheme is highly acclaimed by teachers and youth workers alike, who have frequently used it to ensure readiness to support the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme. An ideal qualification for the masses - This course, in its convenience, transports you from urban settings through many rights of way and crisscrossing into our beautiful countryside. Both mentally and physically stimulating, the Lowland Leader scheme is the perfect addition to your CV and skill set!. There is no camping or overnight element to this qualification as this is now covered by the Expedition Skills Module which can be attended once the Lowland Leader Award has been achieved. The following elements will be covered on your two day training course: - Leadership Skills and Group Management - Walking Skills - Planning a Walk - Basic Mapwork and Route Finding Skills - Equipment - Hazards and Emergency Procedures - Environmental Awareness, Conservation, Access and Land Ownership For more information and to download the free Lowland Leader Candidate Handbook, follow the link here: Course Director: Cliff Lowther / Roxcool
