Mountain Training UK are the National Governing Body for mountain leadership qualifications in the UK. Their first training scheme was the Mountain Leader qualification, established in 1964. They have recently launched a hill skills course that aims to promote safe enjoyment of hill walking in non-mountainous terrain, the first course that they have established that does not have a leadership element to it.
“The Hill Skills course is your key to getting started in countryside and moorland walking. There is no experience of hill walking required to attend a Hill Skills course because the content of the course is aimed at beginners. If you do have some experience of hill walking but aren’t confident about planning walks, navigating and understanding the equipment required, then the Hill Skills course is an ideal way to learn.”
Our brief was to provide a video that showed the sorts of environments that people can enjoy once they have undertaken a course and to show the types of skills that they will acquire.
The film was shot in the Peak District and North Wales over two days.
