The Sports Leaders UK Level 3 Certificates in Lowland Expedition Leadership and Lowland Walk Leadership are nationally recognised qualifications that trains and qualifies teachers, youth workers and other members of the community to:
- Lead walking groups in lowland countryside
- Impart the knowledge and skills needed to undertake a day walk
- Have responsibility for the care of others while leading a day walk in lowland countryside
- Plan and lead overnight base and mobile camps.
It is the minimum qualification required by some Operating Authorities for those wanting to train and lead groups in the expedition section of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme. The level of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award that a Basic Expedition Leader can lead depends on the terrain in which the expedition is taking place. The terrain must fall within the BEL Operating Remit.
The qualification also counts towards the volunteering section of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme or the service section of all three awards in The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme.
