Big congratulations to Musselburgh Grammar’s Lizzie Orsi who just successfully completed her Mountain Leader (ML) Award.
The ML is a one of the Mountain Training’s top level awards and requires a significant commitment in time and effort. To gain this award you are assessed in a variety of aspects of mountain leadership including night navigation, environmental awareness, land-access, group management and safety on steep ground using a rope. Plus you need to build a significant log book of evidence of your experience in the mountains.
With this award Lizzie can now lead groups on trips into any of the mountainous areas in Britain from Snowdonia to Ben Hope, from Ben Nevis to Mount Keen – and everywhere in between. Whether supervising DofE groups, or enhancing her delivery of Geography this qualification will be a great asset for Lizzie to teach in the outdoors – anywhere! Top job.
