Mountain Leader Award

Training and assessment courses

“For any aspirant Mountain Leader out there I would highly recommend them for either your training or assessment. Value for money, whilst also supporting a Local Authority Outdoor Centre, with friendly & knowledgeable staff; what’s not to like!”  

Paul Curry – Course attendee


Bewerley Park has delivered nationally recognised Mountain Training courses for over 50 years. Ideally situated within easy reach of hills and mountains, Bewerley Park is the perfect venue for the Mountain Leader. Training and Assessment courses for the Mountain Leader run at specified times of the year. However, should 4 or more of you wish to do a training or assessment course outside of those dates, bespoke courses can be arranged for you.

Click through to the Mountain Training website to view our confirmed course dates.

The course content will follow the Mountain Training syllabus for the Mountain Leader. However, our highly experienced, qualified staff possess the skills to personalise their delivery so as to meet everyone’s learning needs.

The course is non-residential, but if required accommodation with full board can be provided for an additional cost. Please contact the office to arrange this.

To attend a Mountain Leader Training or Assessment course you must meet the pre-requisites laid down by Mountain Training.  To find out the pre-requisites and also the syllabus for this award take a look on the Mountain Training website.
