Leadership Training Awards

Longrigg is registered as a provider for the following awards:

Lowland Leader 

for people wishing to lead groups on footpaths, trails and lowland countryside. This terrain would be suitable for many Bronze DofE groups.

Please contact us to register your interest.

Hill and Moorland Leader

This award is for leaders of walking groups in non-mountainous hilly terrain known variously as upland, moor, bog, hill, fell or down.

Such areas are often subject to very harsh weather conditions and require an element of self-sufficiency. Taking responsibility for and leading others in these ever changing and sometimes hostile environments requires skills, knowledge and awareness's that are best developed through a structured training scheme.

This qualification is a suitable award for those wishing to supervise Silver or Bronze D of E groups.

Our next course is planned for 13 - 15 November 2015- please contact us to register your interest.

Mountain Leader

This award trains and assesses candidates in the skills required to lead hillwalking groups in summer conditions on mountainous routes. This is the appropriate level of qualification for someone wishing to supervise groups up to Gold DofE.

Our next course is planned for 25 - 30 Oct 2015. Please contact us to register your interest.
