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: Sadly, with regard to the latest Government guidance on COVID-19 (or coronavirus) we have decided to cancel or postpone all the Leader Training courses scheduled for Spring 2020. If you had booked a place, you should have received an email informing you that the course has been cancelled or postponed and what the next steps are. If you have not received this information please get in touch with us at
