About

The Lowland Leader scheme is designed for people who want to lead groups 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. This award is a wonderful opportunity to gain the leadership skills required to feel confident taking people out walking.

The Lowland Leader training course aims to develop the technical skills, judgements and areas of knowledge deemed necessary to ensure an individual is safe to do so.

This is a 2 day course (minimum of 16 hours)

Prerequisites for the Lowland Leader training course

  • You must be registered on the scheme
  • You must have recorded a minimum of 10 varied walks in Lowland terrain where the use of a map is required, which can have taken place at any point (pre or post registration).
