Yesterday I was up at Glenmore Lodge, the National Outdoor Training Centre, for a Mountain Training Scotland (MTS) Provider, Course Director and Staff Seminar. This event provides an opportunity for those providing and working on Mountain Training Awards in Scotland to share thoughts and experiences and give feedback to MTS.
The main areas of focus for the day were an MTS Update; presentations and discussions on some of the newer awards/courses and pathways for supporting newcomers to delivering/providing Mountain Training Awards.
The newer awards/courses such as Lowland Leader Award and Hill and Mountain Skills were discussed in some detail and there was some good input and feedback from those who’d delivered these courses and assessments.
A surprisingly lively day with plenty of discussion and energy.
