MTB Leadership Homepage
The mountains, hills and rugged terrain of Great Britain provide a stunning backdrop to our new MTB Leadership Award, as the skills of effective Leadership are outlined through practical and engaging activities at some of the best outdoor venues throughout the country.
There are currently three qualifications, with Level 1 providing an industry standard for Outdoor Education Centres, while Level 2 and 3 are for aspiring individuals who want to share a passion for mountain biking with others as a qualified Leader of mountain bike rides.
