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.
All our staff have extensive knowledge and experience, both personally and in delivering the Lowland Leader Award to a high standard. This combination of in-depth experience enables our trainers to deliver interesting and informative courses that stand out from the crowd and encourage participants to go on to lead groups knowing they have the skills and abilities required to take groups into the outdoors. High Ashurst Outdoor Education Centre is set in 56 acres of woodland on Box Hill, near Dorking, in the tranquil Surrey Hills 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'. The site has a colourful history with records dating back to 1706. Today High Ashurst is a wonderful wide-open space for learning and self-discovery in the natural environment. The course will take in the surrounding areas of the North Downs/Surrey Hills which offer some of South East England's most stunning and accessible rolling countryside. With spectacular scenery and miles of trails and routes to explore this is the ideal location for the Lowland Leader training, assessment and expedition skills module.
