Countryside Leader Award

CLA picThe Countryside Leader Award  (CLA) is delivered by a number of providers which form part of a collaborative group called the Countryside Leader Award Network.

This network of providers shares information on syllabus and course content and discusses good practice in the maintenance and local delivery of the Countryside Leader Award.

Responsibility for managing and administering the Countryside Leader Award rests with each provider organisation.

All users of the Countryside Leader Award must ensure their authorising organisation or employer recognises and accepts the CLA as suitable evidence of competence for the role in which they are deployed.
