What could be more rewarding than sharing the views from the UK’s Coastal Paths or such stunning areas like the beautiful New Forest?
The new Lowland Leader Award is ideal for teachers, community workers or those involved with the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme – in fact anyone who wants to lead summer walking groups in lowland countryside and woodland. The UK has some of the most fantastic countryside that needs sharing with others!
The Lowland Leader Award is a nationally accredited scheme developed and administered by Mountain Training. The award is designed to train and assess those who wish to lead groups on day walks in lowland countryside and woodland in summer conditions.
A separate Expedition Skills Module can be 'bolted on' to the Lowland Leader if you want to increase the scope of your award to include multi-day expeditions.
