We can manage the existing programme with our current bank of leaders, but to expand we really need extra leaders and back markers.
We are in particular need of leaders to start new entry level walks, these are walks which are no longer than 30 minutes.
Free Walk leader training taking place at AFC Telford United on Thursday 6th February 2-4pm inside the Learning Centre. Delivered by Walking for Health
If you would like to train to join us as a walk leader or require extra information please email [email protected] or [email protected]
The initial training is all on one day or half-day, then 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.
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.
