Mountain Training and the Scouts have had connections for decades thanks to our shared interest in walking, climbing and mountaineering. Many Scout leaders go on to gain one or more of our qualifications and many of the people who already hold our qualifications find themselves volunteering their time with the Scouts, which then requires a permit.

So we've collaborated to create two infographics which showcase the pathways and opportunities for everyone involved in leading walking and climbing activities. It is not designed to be prescriptive or limiting and the Scout permit system remains wholly separate from the awarding organisations of Mountain Training and their qualifications. The aim of the walking and climbing graphics below are to enable everyone to understand the options available at every stage of their development.
