Then join us on a free walk leader training days organised by Inner London Ramblers – a great way to boost your confidence and improve your skills.
The one-day course is facilitated by an experienced walk leader and trainer and includes a short demonstration walk. It covers all the basic skills of walk leading including:
- Choosing an appropriate route
- Qualities of a good walk leader
- Managing a group
- What to do before, during and after the walk

Lunch isn’t provided, so bring a packed lunch or there are shops and cafés nearby. Bring outdoor clothing and comfortable footwear for the demonstration walk.
Note that the course focuses on group management and walks in easy terrain, including urban areas. It doesn’t cover technical navigation skills or challenging walks in upland areas.
