Mountain Training Hill and Moorland Walker

Get away from the paths and enjoy our wild places as a Hill and Moorland Leader. This qualification is ideal for walkers who want to learn the skills required for effective group leadership in the hill and moorland areas of the UK and Ireland. It is used extensively by those involved with delivering the Duke of Edinburgh's Award as well as many walk leaders and outdoor instructors. Hill and Moorland Leaders operate in terrain that is generally more remote than that used by Lowland Leaders and not as steep or rocky as ground covered by Mountain Leaders. 

In a previous life this qualification was called Walking Group Leader (WGL) - in 2014 we renamed it and made some minor changes. The 'overnight experience' element of the WGL was removed and we created a separate Expedition Skills Module which can be 'bolted on' to the Hill and Moorland Leader if you want to increase the scope of your qualification to include overnight expeditions.
