The Bronze National Navigation award Course starts at the beginning, getting to grips with maps, navigating on paths and other linear features. Participants who reach the standard are awarded a badge and certificate. This level is recognised by the Scottish Qualifications Framework.Read More
The Silver National Navigation Award enables you to reach objectives that are not necessarily linked by linear features (paths, tracks, streams, etc). Successful participants gain a certificate and badge.Read More
The National Navigation Award scheme offers a systematic and progressive approach to finding your way around, and opens up the possibility of independent walking with increased confidence. Each course has some theory but is mostly practical, and there is a non-threatening assessment component, rewarded by a certificate and badge.
These courses are non-residential. Most courses are operated from our Stirling base with the occasional course being run from other locations within Scotland. The gold assessment course takes place in the afternoon and evening.
