The Role of The Voluntary Leader in the Outdoors - 07/06/2005

A one day conference jointly hosted by Plas y Brenin, the BMC and MLTUK with contributions from the Scout Association and the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme will occur on 7th June at Plas y Brenin in Capel Curig.

Are you responsible for outdoor activities delivered by volunteers? Do you run a climbing wall, a mountaineering club or a community programme? What can volunteers do? How can the BMC help? Do they need to be qualified? - these and many other questions will be discussed at the conference.

The conference will be aimed at helping us find out precisely where you stand, both legally and morally, as volunteers. Discussion will focus upon what changes can be made to improve safety management without compromising the ‘adventure experience’.
Of course, the burning issue of whether or not volunteers should be required to reach a nationally recognised level of qualification will be analysed in depth along with what contribution the governing bodies can make, and how appropriate current training schemes are.

The conference will also provide an opportunity for the MLTUK to reveal the new ‘National Guidelines’ which advise on good practice for anyone with a responsibility for mountain related activities and there will be an official launch of the Mountain Leader Training Association (MLTA) which provides a useful platform for Mountain Leaders, both professional and voluntary, to share knowledge and expertise to help maintain high standards in outdoor leadership.

Also the BMC will be unveiling the new Club Guidance Notes, aimed to help formalise, rationalise and strengthen the UK’s club system.

Following that the MLTUK’s revised National Guidelines will be revealed which advises on good practice for anyone with a responsibility for mountain related activities and there will also be an official launch of the Mountain Leader Training Association (MLTA) which provides a useful platform for Mountain Leaders, both professional and voluntary, to share knowledge and expertise to help maintain high standards in outdoor leadership.

Guest Speakers Include: Anne Newcombe, Alex Minajew, John Cousins, Iain Peter, Louise Thomas, Dave Turnbull.
