Before you book onto a Hill and Moorland Leader assessment, make sure you have done the following:
This course aims to observe and assess candidates in all aspects of the Hill & Moorland Leader Award Syllabus and their suitability to lead others in suitable HML mountain areas of the UK and Ireland in summer conditions.
Upon acceptance onto the course students will receive a written home paper to be completed and returned to Tollymore before attending assessment.
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.
Bring any of your own personal rock climbing / outdoor clothing and kit such as, waterproof jacket and trousers, boots, fleece jacket, hat and gloves, flask, water bottle, mourne map (1:25,000), compass Silva type 4 or similar, camp kit (sleeping bag, stove, cookware, etc),and spare clothes. It’s best to bring plenty of lighter layers and avoid cotton if possible as it offers little heat and takes ages to dry out if wet or sweaty.
Please ensure you bring along a device which will allow you to ‘stopwatch’ your time.
Tollymore can supply most of the equipment you require for this course but as an aspirant Hill and Moorland Leader, it is assumed you will be fairly self-sufficient in terms of kit.
The course fee includes kit, equipment, in course transport, coaching, food and accommodation.
Course accommodation will be in shared twin ensuite rooms. If you would prefer not to share a room, single occupancy may be available for an additional charge.
