What you get:
The Hill and Moorland Leader scheme is designed for those leading hillwalkers in non-mountainous, upland areas of the UK and Ireland and looks at the leadership skills required to confidently lead walking groups in such areas. The Hill and Moorland Leader is a nationally recognised qualification and is administered by Mountain Training. The award is particularly relevant to teachers, scout leaders and those involved in supervising Duke of Edinburgh expeditions for young people in upland areas of the UK. The scheme is open to all hillwalkers who are at least eighteen years of age and interested in leading in the hills.
Our three-day Hill and Moorland Leader Training course is based in the High Peak and is designed to give a thorough introduction to the skills needed to lead walking groups. There is a strong focus on the practical skills which leaders of groups need and navigation away from paths is a key part of this. Practical sessions are supplemented by evening lectures on subjects such as upland weather and emergency procedures.
Mountain Training England provider Adventure Unlimited in conjunction with Pure Outdoor is offering the opportunity to participate in a HML Training course based from Pure Outdoor HQ.
Two nights bed and breakfast accommodation at a youth hostel is provided. Please supply your own lunches on all three days. There is a well-equipped self-catering kitchen, plenty of local pubs and the youth hostel can also provide evening meals.
