    This particular event is free to attend, so no payment is required.

    It is too late to book a place for this particular session, sorry about that.

    Bums off Seats is a Fife Walking Initiative. It provides free local health walking opportunities in Fife and all walks are led by a trained team of Volunteer Walk Leaders.  A health walk is a free, short, local walk and is suitable for most people, even if you have a long term health condition such as Dementia or Cancer.

    At 09:30 - 13:00 on Wednesday 17 March 2021, Fife Health Promotion Training Team is running an interactive, condensed version of the one-day Walk Leader course. This course is aimed at adults 18 years+ who want to lead safe and effective health walks either 1 to 1 or with groups. Walking can take place in Tier 4 under outdoor learning with a max of 30 people, following Covid-19 procedures. 

    Those who attend the training would be given some pre-course work to do before joining the call as a starting point on your journey to becoming a walk leader. A pack containing your walk leader manual will be sent to you via postal mail. 

    Course content includes:    

    • Setting the Scene
    • Benefits of Walking 
    • All About Health Walks
    • Being a Walk Leader 
    • Next Steps and getting started
