How will I be taught?
The pace varies to suit the pace of the group and the terrain. Students are provided with a detailed description of each walk as well as notes about local history and points of interest. If you have a disability and think it may affect your learning in the classroom, or using any of our other services, please speak to us in confidence as soon as possible. We will discuss options with you and do our best to provide the support you would like.
To assist us in providing a safe and healthy environment for you to exercise you will be asked to complete a Confidential Health Questionnaire. Your progress will be monitored through a Learning record and your own personal learning diary or fitness log.
What do I need to bring with me?
Good walking boots or shoes which support the ankle. Wellington boots are not recommended and neither are jeans. You will need to dress for any kind of weather. It is always advisable to take a drink, especially in hot weather, and you may wish to bring a snack. Please note that many car parks, including the National Trust and the Forestry Commission, now charge for parking.
What can I do next?
You could progress to other walking courses with KAES or other providers or longer walks with the Ramblers Association or the Long Distance Walkers Association. To enrol on our courses either contact a Centre of go to www.kentadulteducation.co.uk. You are advised to enrol early as these are popular courses and places cannot be guaranteed.
What do I need to join the course
