WHAT WILL MY ASSESSMENT LOOK LIKE?

 

The Lowland Leader assessment course runs over 2 days practically spent enjoying some of North Wales’ finest lowland walks. There are a number of areas that will be looked at including how you keep people safe, your 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!
