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. We have trained and assessed school teachers, college lecturers, youth workers, rambling group leaders, police cadets, and firefighters.
The leadership opportunities for Lowland Leaders are varied and far reaching, from the South West Coast Path to the Great Glen Way; walking in lowland areas can be no less spectacular than walking high up in the mountains.
We really enjoy delivering these courses, not least meeting the wide variety of candidates they attract, and have provided the qualification since 2013. The majority of our courses are based in our local Chiltern Hills. This area provides a superb location in which to explore it's variety of paths and terrain. We also deliver courses in Suffolk, Norfolk and Bedfordshire.
During our courses we draw on our experience delivery of higher level NGB awards, together with over 20 years walking experience worldwide. Your experience is important too, and we encourage all candidates to contribute to the course topics.
Both training and assessments are two days in duration, and dependant on the base location, may offer camping accommodation as well. The infographic below shows where the Lowland Leader sits on the Mountain Training qualification pathway:
