WHAT WILL MY ASSESSMENT

LOOK LIKE?

 

The Hill and Moorland Leader assessment course runs over 3 days and will assess you on a variety of skills including how you keep people safe, you personal walking skills, how to plan a walk, navigation and route finding skills. As with all assessments they should be an enjoyable experience set in a relaxed atmosphere that allows you to perform at your best and hopefully learn some new skills too!

 

This is a sample programme and is subject to  change based on weather.

On return to base and after a well deserved cuppa there will be an individual feedback session discussing your performance over the past 3 days. An action plan to work towards your Expedition Skills Module can also be discussed.
