Leaders with the necessary skills, knowledge and attributes are integral to the delivery of the John Muir Award.

Training is offered in addition to information and resources which are designed to give enough guidance to deliver the John Muir Award. Attending training is not a requirement to be able to run the John Muir Award.

Training courses are available to help leaders to find out more about the ethos of the John Muir Award and practicalities of delivering it. They offer a complementary, thorough introduction, with opportunities to network with others interested in running the Award, and to further develop skills and confidence.

Training courses are available throughout the UK and across the year. You should check suitability of the Award for your group prior to attending - guidance here, or contact to discuss further.

COVID-19: We are currently reviewing our John Muir Award training delivery. We expect to continue with online introductory training but also face to face training, either residential or non-residential. Any face to face training is likely to be in Spring 2022. If you have thoughts on how we deliver training or wish to register your interest you can email us at

Tailored training sessions are designed specifically for staff/volunteers from one organisation, area or group. These tend to be one day courses. Contact to find out more and discuss options including locations, dates and prices.
