Community Walking Leader Training Level 1
Walking Leader Training is primarily aimed at people wishing to lead a walking group or promote walking in their community or workplace. The course comprises of a weekend of training followed by a 4 walk task to try out your new Walking Leader skills.
The Irish Heart Foundation and the HSE are subsidising the Walking Leader Training weekend and there is a nominal cost of €50. The course fee will cover your tutor costs and materials. It will also include lunch on both days.
If you are thinking of expanding your walking group or know anyone who might be interested in training as a walking leader please complete the attached registration form and send it to Leitrim Sports Partnership, at the address below.
***Please Note: Before committing to the training, it is important to remember that the aim of each course is to have a panel of trained leaders ready to implement their skills in their own communities. We will therefore hope all participants will organise walks on a regular basis after the training. ***
