For those taking groups out in lowland areas of the UK. The Lowland Leader Award is of particular relevance for:
A two day course where you will cover the Lowland Leader award syllabus and have plenty of opportunity to put your skills into practice.
Focusing on the leadership of hill walking groups in hilly and moorland areas of the UK where you may be away from tracks and paths. There is a heavy emphasis on the technical aspects of navigating away from tracks and paths and in poor visibility. This Award is of particular relevance for:
A three day course with a big focus on navigation skills for different situations. We will look at the hazards hill and moorland terrain may present and how this might affect your leadership decisions.
A bolt-on module for full Lowland Leader and Hill and Moorland Leader Award holders which looks at the additional skills necessary to lead others in a walking environment that includes overnight camps.
The module looks at the important skill of remote supervision – the key ingredient in safe and successful DofE expeditions (in line with the DofE’s 20 Conditions for Expeditions). The module is two days long with an overnight camp – training and assessment are continuous across the two days.
Both Lowland Leader and Hill & Moorland Leader Award holders are required to undertake the Expedition Skills Module if they wish to work with groups that involve an element of overnight camping.
We run ITC certificated first aid courses throughout the year. The 16-hour Outdoor First Aid course is designed to equip holders of all outdoor NGB qualifications with the skills to deal with illnesses, injuries and medical emergencies that may unfold while you are working with groups on the hill.
You must hold a current 16-hour first aid certificate for all Mountain Training NGB awards to be valid.
