Walk Leadership Next Steps - Edinburgh
Our practical course will equip you with the core skills for planning and leading safe and enjoyable walks for Ramblers Scotland.
About this Event

We will spend a day exploring key navigation skills including map reading and basic compass work, dealing with emergencies, what kit to bring, essential leadership concepts, 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 Ramblers Scotland.

Who is the course for?

This course is for Ramblers Scotland volunteers who will lead walks for our groups. Some people attend to learn more about what it's like to lead walks and decide if the role is for them. Others attend to develop their skills and confidence. We extend a warm welcome to both new and experienced walk leaders.

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.

Entry requirements

The course will build on the Walk Leader Foundations and Preventing and Managing Incidents e-Learning courses that are available free to all our walk leaders. We ask that you complete these ahead of the training day. We will send you information before the course to help you access these courses and come prepared for a great day.
