Lowland Leaders 2011/2012

Hi all, in previous years the adult expedition training course we have delivered has been the Basic Expedition Leaders Award (BELA).  However we have always found the BELA a little restrictive in terms of the areas you can operate in once you have the qualification.  We have therefore switched to a south wales specific qualification called the Lowland Leaders Award Wales (LLAW).  This qualification gives you a more clear and wider operating area (D of E bronze and silver expeditions) although it is not yet nationaly recognised like the BELA.  Therefore if you are looking to gain a qualification that can be used  with organisations outside of the Swansea/Neath Port Talbot area then please get in touch with myself to discuss.
