Before you book onto a Lowland Leader Training, make sure you have done the following:
The Lowland Leader Training is 2 days long (minimum 16 hours contact time) and commences on Saturday morning.
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.
The leadership opportunities for Lowland Leaders are varied and far reaching, from the South West Coast Path to the Great Glen Way; walking in lowland areas can be no less spectacular than walking high up in the mountains. And with campaigns such as Britain on Foot and Walking for Health proving really popular, there’s never been a better time to be a walking leader.
This course is ideal for those who lead walks on waymarked trails, coastal paths and forest walks. It is very useful for those in walking clubs who aspire to gain leadership qualifications and lead others in their club.
It is also used by tour guides, council staff and others who lead groups on popular long and short distance trails in lowland, non-remote terrain.
