About the Event

Mountain Training have recently updated the walking qualification syllabuses. They have improved the section on leadership and added a section on teaching and learning skills. This workshop is aimed at those who already hold the ML, HML or LL Qualifications or are working towards them and those who train and assess these qualifications. The aim is to get under the skin of the changes and see how they look and feel ‘on the hill’.

We’ll start with an indoor session brainstorming the characteristics of good leadership. We’ll then get out on a walk (it'll be lowland leader terrain around Betws y Coed) to translate these into leadership behaviours. Armed with this experience we’ll visit some theoretical models of leadership including the INSPIRE model as used by Mountain Training. All this will then be related to the walking qualification syllabi and how leadership might be demonstrated, trained and assessed ‘on the hill’.

We’ll then reflect on the teaching and learning throughout the day and relate how the day went in terms of good teaching and learning practice. I’ll provide a condensed model that works in the outdoor setting as well as in classrooms.

Attendees will leave the workshop with two action plans one based on leadership suited to their own needs and one based on improving their own teaching practice.

The workshop will be run from the classroom above Alpkit in Betws y Coed. Alpkit kindly offer attendees on these workshops a 10% discount in store. You will need a packed lunch drinks and be equipped to go for a walk in the prevailing conditions. The group is limited to 9 people so that we can have deep discussions in groups of three.

There is one CPD point for MTA, AMI and BAIML members.
