Latest Training News

We held a training on  July 14th in Oakengates, which we hope we lead to a new walk from there.

If you would like to attend or next training, or just find out more, please email  [email protected]  or phone 07512 123995

You could  be a walk leader if this is you:

  • Have a great enthusiasm for walking and Ramblers Wellbeing Walk’s vision of everyone having access to a short, free and friendly walk
  • Have a couple of hours spare per month or maybe more.
  • Are happy to stay in touch with your local scheme for updates / refreshers when required
  • Are open minded, willing to support a diverse range of people  to become more active through walking.
  • Are over 18, in line with our safeguarding policy

Next steps:

  • The new  training programme is in 2 parts with the first done in your own time, as part of this we ask that you go on one of the walks in our programme. The second part  may be via Zoom  or may be face to face and will involve a demo walk, at the same time for face to face sessions or at a later date for Zoom sessions.
  • We can put on a training session at  relatively short notice  so please get in touch if you are interested. After the training  you would shadow an existing leader before leading your first walk. There will be an experienced leader in attendance on your first walk, so you will be  well supported.
  • For further information  please email [email protected]

We always  need new walk leaders to start new walks, including entry level walks, these are walks which are no longer than 30 minutes. All  our existing walks would welcome new input too.

The video used as part of the training, 23 1/2 hours, is fun and is recommended for everyone, walkers, would-be walkers and walk leaders.
