About the event

Finish off 2024 with your Lowland Leader assessment! 

The Lowland Leader qualification is a nationally recognised walking qualification designed for people who wish to lead groups on day walks in lowland countryside. Over 2 days you'll be assessed in all areas of the Lowland Leader syllabus including navigation, leadership, emergency procedures, access, conservation and environment. It's my job to check that you meet the standards set by Mountain Training but I aim to do so in a relaxed, supportive way that gives you chance to show what you can do. There will be plenty of chance for questions, learning, mistakes and fixing them! You'll have the benefit of learning from other people in your group and feedback to prepare you for next steps. We will be training in the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside. 

Before booking this course:

  • You must be at least 18 years old
  • You must have attended a Lowland Leader training course (or have been granted exemption)
  • You must be familiar with the syllabus
  • You must have recorded a minimum of 20 quality lowland days walks in different types of terrain (woodland, coastal, farmland etc)
  • You must have physically attended and completed (i.e. not online) a first aid course which involved at least two full days or sixteen hours of instruction and included an element of assessment

Whilst this course is open to all*, DYO is particularly keen to support future female leaders. If you have questions, please get in touch!
