Lowland Expedition Leader Course (LEL) ( new name for BEL from 2017)
If you are looking for BEL course then you are at the right place as the Sports Leaders’ course that replaces the BEL it is called the Lowland Expedition Leader and it is still a level 3 award, with mostly the same requirements and standards.
The new LEL level 3 is very similar to the BEL level 3 from Sports Leaders UK it is a nationally recognised award, and it replaces the BEL and in many places it is the minimum requirement for a D of E expedition leader to train groups and lead Bronze or Silver( not Gold) expeditions with in Lowland terrain.
It is not limited to use with D of E as it is a national qualification that qualifies people to:-
- · Lead walking groups in lowland countryside (not remote upland)
- · 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
The LEL Course is for anyone wishing to obtain the award for what ever reason, any amount of experience from none to lots!
We have also had the comment from participants that it is a good general Leadership qualification giving people not used to leading more confidence to take the lead.
Our course all takes place in Essex, all days are compulsory as all the requirements of the course must be seen completed there is an assessment weekend at the end of the course and by then we should have dealt with any problems that people have.
If your establishment wishes to have a bespoke course for between 4 and 10 people please contact us and we can discuss this.
