Mountain Training, (the National Governing Body of mountain leadership and instructing in the UK) launched 2 new courses in April 2014 called Hill Skills and Mountain Skills. These new courses are 'personal proficiency' rather than 'leadership' based. Ideal for young people and adults who want to get out hillwalking in the uplands of Britain and Ireland, they can also be used as a stepping stone towards gaining the experience and qualifications necessary to lead groups professionally.
Lupine Adventure Co-op is very pleased that we were approved in the first wave of providers for these new courses. We will be running Hill Skill courses from Edale in the Peak District and from Ilkley in the Yorkshire Dales. Mountain Skills courses will be run from Ambleside in the Lake District and Llanberis in Snowdonia.
So far in 2017 we have run two successfull courses, a Mountain Skills course based in the Lake District and a Hill Skills course based in the Peak District. Our next open course will be a Mountain Skills course on the 23rd and 24th September in the Lake District.
In November 2016 we ran was a Hill Skills course for students from the University of East Anglia Fell and Mountaineering Society. Based from Edale in the Peak District we can deliver a Hill Skills course to a group of up to eight people for a special price of £425. Please get in touch with Dave Lyons via the email link at the bottom of this page to discuss booking this great value deal for your group.
We can run these courses for individuals on the dates listed below or for groups on dates to suit you. We are currently developing a specific package called 'Hill Skills For Schools' aimed at 14 - 18 year olds who are thinking about working in the outdoors or joining the uniformed services.
To attend these courses you will have to register with Mountain Training (this costs £10 for under 18's and £20 for those 18 years old and over). For more information about these courses click on the links below or to book on the advertised dates click on the Book Now button.
