Our ethos and values

We believe in:

  • The safe enjoyment of walking and mountaineering

  • High quality instruction and delivery of courses delivered by experienced and supportive leaders.

  • Developing independent walkers and mountaineers who practice and encourage, sustainable and sympathetic use of the outdoors by all users.

  • Supporting equal access for people from all backgrounds.

  • Good leadership is about more than decision making and technical skill; it is about supporting and developing individuals.

  • Inspiring people to enjoy walking and mountaineering with confidence and skill.

All of our walking and navigation skill courses and National Navigation Award Schemes are designed to educate people so that they can safely enjoy the coast, hills and mountains of our beautiful country. 

We only use Mountain Training qualified Mountain Leaders or Hill & Moorland Leaders who are members of the Mountain Training Association and are committed to continued professional development and national guidelines. Likewise, our leaders also have valid first aid training and a DBS check.
