Navigation Courses

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.
