At WALX Leicester East we are going places, and are seeking support from enthusiastic individuals to help us lead walks and activities across Leicester and Leicestershire. For the right individuals, full training, first aid and insurance will be provided. You will also enjoy free membership of our club, and all the benefits that go with it.

WALX Guides are trained to plan routes and lead them safely. They do not teach any technique but are able to understand the medical screening, technique training, correct intensity and risk assessment process in order to lead walks safely. With appropriate insurance and First aid they can lead walks on their own but often they assist Instructors with group management. They play a vitally important role within groups by helping with planning, social events and motivation. As they can lead those suitably trained and screened on a range of walks, this allows the Instructor to concentrate on teaching and exercise drills. Access to further CPD modules is also provided for leaders who wish to lead some specific sessions such as Speedhyking, Yoga etc.
