Become our Walking Leader Apprentice

Would like to join us on a four month Walking Leader Apprenticeship in 2016?

HF Holidays is now in it's fifth year of offering Walking Leader Apprenticeships. For the past four years we have enabled five Apprentices to join us for a breathtaking summer leading our guests on walks from our Country Houses. It was a journey that took them all over the UK and enabled our Apprentices to achieve either a Summer Mountain Leader Award or a Hill & Moorland Leader Award. Our next Apprentice starts her journey this summer.

We have an opportunity for one more Apprentice to join us this summer. Travelling to some of the most scenic parts of Britain, a journey that could take you anywhere from the Lake District to Dartmoor to the Isle of Wight. As a volunteer, you'll be hosted at our Country Houses and work within teams of other volunteer walking holiday leaders. You'll be supported with accommodation, meals, travel expenses and comprehensive training to enable you to improve your skills and gain qualifications.

The apprenticeship will run between May and the end of October 2016. You'll need to be competent in leading and navigating in moorland or mountain areas.
