We operate the National Navigation Award Scheme, which is arranged in three levels. Starting at a complete beginner to advanced. Each level of proficiency is recognised by a certificate validated to a national level.


Navigation mainly by linear features with help from basic compass techniques.


Partly off-path navigation with some contour interpretation and distance judgement.


Complex navigation on contoured open or woodland terrain employing a full range of interpretative and compass techniques.

The rest of the day will be a practical session on local hills and more land including orienteering course and night navigation.
