LLAW - AoFAQ Level 3 National Certificate in Lowland and                                               Moorland Expedition Leadership

The LLAW Outdoor Leader Awards provides robust outdoor skills to organise and supervise Duke of Edinburgh Award groups from Bronze through to Silver and Gold.


The course is ideal for Teachers, DofE Leaders, walking groups and others who intend taking groups into lowland areas, with opportunities for personal growth and  development  to LLAW Level 2  - Open Moorland Supervision.


The commitment is 96 hours of tutor contact time  including night navigaation session, a two night expedition and assessment. During the course the candidates are expected to log 32 hours of learning consolidation events where they apply their learning in practical situations. Reflective/Module assessment logs provide evidence of learning and progression through learning pathways..

The LLAW Lowland and Moorland Leader Award has successfully run over the past five years across 4 local authorities in South Wales with a substantial and growing following in the Outdoor Community.


I'm quite ridiculously please to announce that as from August 2012 the accreditation and due diligence for this course was provided by AoFAQ - an Ofqual accredited body - and is now known as the Level 3 National Certificate in Lowland and Moorland Expedition Leadership.
