Event description
Our new course will equip volunteers at Ramblers Scotland with the core skills for planning and leading safe and enjoyable walks

About this event

Do you lead walks with Ramblers Scotland? Do you want to brush up on your practical skills for leading safe and enjoyable walks? Then this course is for you.

We will spend a day exploring key navigation skills incuding map reading, nevigating using the 5Ds, dealing with emergencies, what kit to bring and much more.

The course is all taught outdoors in small groups of no more than 6 volunteers. It is 100% practical. Like you, the trainer will be a volunteer. They are experienced in leading walks with the Ramblers.

Before and after the course we will send you learning materials to help you prepare for the course and to support you in your role.

Who is the course for?

The course is ideal for people who lead Leisurely and Moderate walks.

If you lead Easy and Easy Access walks, you will still enjoy the course and it may give you confidence to think about leading more challenging walks in the future. If you lead Strenuous or Technical walks, this course will give you the chance to refresh some of the basics.

Everyone is welcome.

Entry requirements

This course is for Ramblers Scotland volunteers who will lead walks for our groups. We extend a warm welcome to both new and experienced walk leaders.

The course will build on the Walk Leader Foundations e-Learning course that is available free to all our walk leaders on Assemble. We ask that you complete this ahead of the training day.

What if the course is fully booked?

Please add your name to our waiting list if the course is fully booked.

We can offer you a place if there is a cancellation. We will also continue to offer new dates in the months ahead, so knowing who is on the waiting list will help us target new courses where there is demand and to let you know when new dates become available.
