Hill & Moorland Leader Award Training Course

Hill & Moorland Leader Award Course

The Hill & Moorland Leader Award Course is for leaders of walking groups in summer conditions in non-mountainous hilly terrain, known variously as upland, moor, bog, hill, fell or down. Such areas are often subject to harsh weather conditions, requiring an element of self-sufficiency and this scheme will help you develop the necessary skills and experience.

Taking responsibility for yourself is one thing, being responsible for others is something else. In your "duty of care" you owe it to your group that you are competent to take that responsibility.

The UK Mountain Training Board has, over the years, developed an excellent range of training and assessment courses aimed at people (18 years and over) who aspire to become leaders or instructors.

C-N-Do Scotland is authorised as a suitable organisation for the delivery of Hill & Moorland Leader Award Course course.

Course Aims:

Leadership on Uncomplicated, Readily Accessible, and Non Mountainous Terrain.

The Hill & Moorland Leader Award Course is great for:

  • Ramblers
  • Countryside Rangers
  • Tourist Guides
  • DOE Award Supervisors
  • Youth Workers
  • Teachers
  • Club Leaders
  • Game Keepers & Stalkers
