Amcanion cyffredinol

Aims: 1. To enable graduates to appreciate, acquire and demonstrate the skills(e.g. field based first aid ; orienteering and mapping) and knowledge they require to plan and undertake fieldwork, either by themselves or with groups, in the hills and mountains and lakes and coastline of the UK. 2. To understand the inter-relationships between access, recreation, conservation and environment in the hills and mountains and lakes and coastline of the UK and the legislation pertinent to these.

The focus of the course is on activities involving walking under late spring/summer/early autumn weather conditions.
It does not involve students in actually undertaking rock climbing, planned use of ropes, or excursions under winter conditions although these activities may be considered during the module in relation to impact, conflict and conservation issues

Participation in some of the module assessment activities will require you to undertake sustained periods of outdoor activities over moderate terrain. You will be required to complete a ‘health check’ form prior to participating in more strenuous activities.

Cynnwys cwrs

The module will include the following: group management and the responsibilities of the group leader; navigation; UK legislation relating to access, recreation, conservation and environment; identifying and responding to hazards; selection and use of equipment; expedition skills. These will be based on a range of the outdoor learning environments e.g. lakes, coastline, hills and mountains.
