Who is it for?
Leader training is designed for staff, volunteers and leaders who are interested in delivering the John Muir Award (maximum of three participants from one organisation). Content is aimed at those already working with groups or organisations, but will also be of interest to individuals. Ideally, those attending will have at least one year's experience of working with groups.
Cost is £150 for two days, including food & accommodation. Reduced rate places of £100 are available for those attending in an individual capacity and for charity representatives*.
If cost is a barrier to you attending as an individual, then please contact us.
*Maximum of one reduced place per charitable organisation per training course - if your charity is booking for more than one person the reduced rate applies to the first participant only.
