You're a mountain trainer who wants to put others through their paces by assessing their skills. We'll develop the generic skills you need to be able to assess effectively during this two day workshop. You'll get a mix of theory in our excellent classroom facilities, and plenty of opportunity to put this theory into practice on the hills.

The Objectives

You'll be better equipped to make assessment decisions.


* Please note: Itinerary is subject to weather and availability.

What to Expect

You'll spend day one covering the theory of the assessment process, assessing styles, feedback styles and issues before preparing for day two’s practical assessment of mock students with real feedback. We'll spend some time at the end of the course reflecting on your practical exercise and summarising the key aspects of the course.

Experience Required

You'll benefit if you have some training or even assessment experience on hill walking or rock climbing schemes such as those run by Mountain Training, Scouting and Guiding.
Assessing can be a very rewarding experience when done well

We want to help you focus on achieving your goals so if you're staying with us, comfortable accommodation (with WIFI included) and good food are part of the deal, you don't need to think about sorting this out for yourself. Support is on hand from our friendly, and exceptionally well qualified staff, to help develop your understanding and personal skills. They also help you to formulate an appropriate action plan for your further development.
