Group Day assessment

Steve was out this week running a BCA Cave Leader Group Day assessment in the Yorkshire Dales.  Aspirant Cave Leaders (the award for leading in mainly horizontal caves with some easy scrambling) have to attend a two day training course before presenting for a Core Skills assessment day to check their knowledge, personal skills and equipment use.  They then have to attend a Group Day assessment in which, as the name implies, they lead their own group on a caving trip with an assessor observing.  Assessors are looking for safe, enjoyable and active days out which encourage participants to do more – the candidate this week certainly delivered on those.

If you’re interested in trying caving, caving training or assessment at any level, then Steve will be pleased to hear from you and happy to support you.  Please get in touch on 07796 213817 and

Steve has regular training courses for both Cave Leader and Vertical Cave Leader advertised on the website; he can run assessment days on demand as required.
