Calling all Adults Leaders….. Do you want to learn or improve your confidence with map and compass?

The region has just become a provider for the National Navigation Award Scheme and the courses cater for total beginners and beyond.

The course will be run by Matt Parkes, one of the region‘s Hill Walking Assessors.

Over the two days the Bronze Award will teach you the essentials of map reading and an introduction to using a compass.

It’s a fantastic opportunity for you to learn the skills needed to navigate, giving you the confidence to undertake your own journeys through well defined and easily recognised low level countryside.

The Bronze Award is accredited by the Scottish Credit & Qualifications Framework (SCQF) at Level 4 (2 SCQF credit points).
