HILL AND MOORLAND LEADER TRAINING

The three-day Hill and Moorland Leader Training course is based in the High Peak and is designed to give a thorough introduction to the skills needed to lead walking groups. There is a strong focus on the practical skills which leaders of groups need and navigation away from paths is a key part of this. Practical sessions are supplemented by evening lectures on subjects such as upland weather and emergency procedures.
