Hill & Moorland Leader Award Assessment
June 20 @ 10:30 am - June 22 @ 5:00 pm£195.00
The Hill and Moorland Leader Award is designed for people who want to lead groups in the hill and moorland areas of the UK and Ireland. These areas include the Peak District, North Yorkshire Moors and Dales, Dartmoor and similar countryside. Being an Award holder is a wonderful way to prove the skills required to confidently take people out walking.
As you may have guessed from the descriptive title of this award, it focuses on non-mountainous terrain. Award holders 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.
This assessment is run in conjunction with Pete Goldsmith Mountaineering WMCI IML, who is the course provider, number 546.
On the assessment, we look at the your skills for navigation in an upland area, group management, what to carry, route planning, what to do in an emergency and the weather. Ideally, you should arrive on assessment current in the skills being assessed. If you have not been out for a little while before the course and wish to improve your navigation or get qualified in first aid skills, have a look at what we offer in these areas.
Before you can join us on this Hill and Moorland Leader assessment, make sure you have done the following:
- Have attended a Hill and Moorland Leader training course (or have been granted exemption)

- Must have physically attended and completed (i.e. not online) a first aid course which involved at least two full days or sixteen hours of instruction and included an element of assessment
The Hill and Moorland Leader assessment is 3 days long.
