We've partnered up with Silva Navigation School to provide a selection of all-inclusive Bronze and Silver navigation courses throughout the year. The Silva Navigation instructors follow the National Navigation Award Scheme (NNAS) syllabus, providing a structured approach to learning navigation skills. To complement the navigation courses, we provide comfortable, en suite accommodation, full catering over the course of the weekend and access to a licensed bar in the evenings.
Bronze NNAS Map and Compass Course
The Bronze NNAS Map and Compass Course is a practical award aimed at people who are new to navigation and map reading.
The syllabus of the Bronze National Navigation Award allows participants to develop a range of skills, such as:
Using 4 and 6 figure grid references
Orientating the map using obvious features and land forms
Using linear features such as paths and tracks in simple navigation exercises
Measuring horizontal distance on a map
Demonstrating an awareness of the Countryside Code
The course runs from Friday evening - Sunday afternoon, with catering provided throughout the weekend. This includes 2 x cooked and continental breakfast buffets, 2 x packed lunches and 2 x evening meals. We cater for all dietary requirements, including gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan. Just let us know! A licensed bar will be available in the evening, which offers a selection of local bottled beers, wines and spirits.
All participants will have sole occupancy of a comfortable, en suite bedroom. Lockers are provided in each bedroom to keep your belonging safe whilst you're out and about.
