Award Description

The Lowland Leader qualification has been designed for people who wish to lead groups on day walks in lowland countryside and woodland in summer conditions. The majority of the UK and Ireland is made up of this type of terrain so you'll never be short of places to go walking.

Complete the attached home paper before attending the course and bring it with you on the morning of the first day. (found in the file tab of this course)

 

You must have recorded a minimum of 20 varied walks in lowland terrain where the use of a map is required. (Ideally these should be recorded on your Mountain Training DLOG) which can have taken place at any point (pre or post registration)

Experience gained in areas other than the UK and Ireland can be recorded if in similar conditions to those found in the UK were encountered.

The majority of your experience however, at least 50% of the days recorded, should be in the UK.

A Quality Day will involve most, if not all, of the factors below:

  • The individual takes part in the planning and leadership.
  • Navigation skills are required.
  • Knowledge is increased and skills practised.
  • Attention is paid to safety.
  • Adverse weather and poor underfoot conditions may be encountered.
  • Four hours or more journey time.
