Walk Leader Training

Wednesday 21st November 2018 | 2-5pm | 54 Bell Street

Fancy learning a new skill? 

As part of our Paths for All funded lunchtime walks programme we are running a training session for folk who’d be interested in leading guided walks in the future – either for our walks programme, for your own work or in your spare time. This will take half a day and will be held at GCHT’s offices. The training is FREE to attend.

This is a great opportunity to learn a new skill, and if you haven’t made it to one of our lunchtime walks yet you can get to know us as well!

The programme will include:

  • About Paths for All, walking and you
  • The benefits of walking for you and your workplace
  • How active should we be?
  • Demonstration walk and discussion
  • Route planning
  • Managing risk
  • Sharing routes with your colleagues
  • Resources and support
  • Evaluation

The training will include a short 20 min walk around the city centre from our offices.


This training is funded by Paths for All as part of GCHT’s lunchtime health walks programme. Paths for All is a partnership of organisations committed to promoting walking for health and the development of multi-use path networks in Scotland.
