Want to lead walks between pubs in your area? This new award aims to tackle the recent decline in the number of people visiting their local pub by training and assessing people in the skills required to lead groups of people, at various stages of inebriation, from one watering hole to the next.

Is it for me?

The prerequisites for registration are as follows:
  • You must be over 21
  • You must have personal experience of pub crawls
  • You must have an interest in leading groups of people on pub crawls
  • You must be familiar with the Government's guidance on drinking responsibly

Training

Before you book onto a Pub Crawl Leader training course, make sure you have done the following:
  • You must be registered on the scheme
  • You must have recorded a minimum of 5 Quality Pub Crawls (ideally on DLOG) which can have taken place at any point (pre- or post-registration)
Pub Crawl Leader training lasts for 3 days and will be run by one of our approved Providers in one of the key drinking areas of the UK or Ireland. A variety of cost packages are available depending on what's included; food, accommodation etc. so you can choose one that's right for you.

The Syllabus

Pub Crawl Leaders should be competent in the following key areas, all of which will be covered during your 3 day training course:
  • Crowd control and leadership
  • Encouraging responsible drinking
  • Hazards and emergency procedures
  • Route planning and urban navigation
  • Community relations (including the Police, Ambulance service and publicans

Consolidation

The period between training and assessment varies in length for each person and is an opportunity to develop your skills, paying particular attention to any weaknesses identified during the training course. We recommend at least six months between training and assessment and if it takes you a few years to feel ready, that’s fine too. You can use the excuse 'I'm preparing for assessment' to enjoy as many pub crawls as possible in this beautiful country of ours!

Assessment

Before you book onto a Pub Crawl Leader assessment, make sure you have done the following:
  • You must have attended a Pub Crawl Leader training course (or have been granted exemption)
  • You must be familiar with the syllabus
  • You must have logged a minimum of 15 pub crawls across at least three of the home nations (England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales)
  • You must hold a current first aid certificate, minimum 16 hours and relevant to your work as a Pub Crawl Leader
The Pub Crawl Leader assessment is 2 days long (minimum 16 hours contact time) and will include two full pub crawls with post-crawl refreshments (eg. carvery).

Assessments are run by one of our approved Providers and a variety of cost packages are available, depending on what's included; food, accommodation etc. so you can choose one that's right for you.

The Scope of the Award

The Pub Crawl Leader award trains and assesses candidates in the skills required to lead others on pub crawls in urban areas that fit ALL of the following criteria:

Pub crawls must not cross any hazardous terrain (e.g. motorways, very steep slopes, water hazards etc.). Throughout the pub crawl the group should never generally be more than 400m away from a key transport link such as a taxi rank, bus stop or train station. Pub crawls will not require the ability to navigate 'off-road'. Pub crawls must use bridges or other recognised water crossing points. Pub crawls must only take place in summer conditions (ie when there is no unavoidable snow or ice on any part of the route).

As with all Mountain Training awards, a combination of technical competence, leadership skills and a wide range of experience form the basis of effective group management. The scheme addresses all these elements. However, the employer or operating authority must ultimately decide whether a leader possesses the personal attributes needed to take responsibility for any particular group of people.

Lead people to drink responsibly.

As it is now past 12pm, we thought you should know this is an April Fool's. However, its popularity has made us think about future developments to our awards pathway.
