Level 2 Training – Training in all the skills needed for Level 2 walking and identification of your areas for development to practise before attending an assessment.

Level 2 Assessment – A weekend in which you are assessed on all the practical skills needed to qualify at Level 2.

If there is enough interest the weekend will also include a four hour training on the Water Safety Module on the Friday, which needs to be done once to qualify at any level on the Walking Scheme.

 

The price of the weekend will include 2 nights accommodation indoors at Osmotherley Youth Hostel and catering throughout.  Transport to and from the event is not included but we may be able to put you in contact with others travelling from/through your area so if this is going to be a problem please contact the NEE office and we will try to help.
