The Sports Leaders UK Level 3 Qualification in Lowland Expedition Leadership is a nationally recognised qualification designed to give you the skills needed to run day walks and expeditions in lowland terrain in summertime.   It is the minimum qualification required by some Operating Authorities for those wanting to train and lead groups in the expedition section of The Duke of Edinburgh's Award scheme. The level of The Duke of Edinburgh's Award that a Basic Expedition Leader can lead depends on the terrain in which the expedition is taking place. The terrain must fall within the LEL Operating Remit.


It  is run over three training weekends and one assessment weekend and covers these key areas:
