|TO KILDARE RETIRED TEACHERS:
Greetings from Baltinglass Outdoor Education and Training Centre, which is operated as a part of Kildare and Wicklow Education and Training Board. Over the past number of winters, we have organised an adult education programme which I feel may be of interest to some of your members. The programme is titled ‘Track and Trail Guide Traineeship’, it is based in Baltinglass, Co. Wicklow, and starts in November each year. This free traineeship makes use of the many hill, valley, and forest walks throughout the region, the programme is delivered primarily outdoors, where participants will develop and practice the skills and knowledge required to plan and lead group walks on these tracks and trails. Training takes place from Tuesday to Thursday each week, with our minibuses transporting participants to a different location each day. I’m hoping that you can forward the attached flyer onto potentially interested parties, we have met some groups from your organisation over the years and I really think this training programme might suit some of them.
Please contact me for further information.
