Steve has just returned from Preston Monford where he has been running a Walking Group Leader Training course for the FSC (Field Studies Council). There were 6 trainees who were all taught various skills in navigation, group management and leadership, hazards etc.
The weather unfortunately decided to take a turn for the worse (probably because my days off were coming up!). However, all had a successful, useful and interesting time. They visited sites in the Berwyns, Stiper Stones and Long Mynd areas. This is the first of several courses we are running for the FSC and most of the students are likely to be ready for assessment in 2012.
Keep an eye on our website for dates of Mountain Leadership Training and Assessment courses. There are 2 places available on the ML Assessment we are running in June.
