Walking Leader Training

Walking Leader Training is primarily aimed at people wishing to lead a walking group or promote walking in the community or workplace. The course comprises of a weekend of training, a follow up 4 week walking programme to try out your new walking leader’s skills.

The Irish Heart Foundation, and Get Ireland Walking are subsidising Walking Leader Training weekend and there is a nominal cost of €30. The course fee will cover your tutor costs and materials. It will also include 2 lunches and tea/coffee breaks throughout the weekend.

***Please Note: Before committing to the training, it is important to remember that the aim of each course is to have a panel of trained leaders ready to implement their skills in their own communities. We will therefore expect all participants to organise walks on a regular basis after the course has ended. ***
