About the event

The Silver National Navigation Award is a practical hands-on award for runners or walkers. (Conducted at walking pace).

The Silver award is an intermediate level course that teaches the skills required to step off well trodden paths and use landscape features, together with a compass and other techniques to follow a route. It is aimed at people that have either already completed the Bronze Navigator award or already have some navigation experience on routes using defined paths. 

For the full Silver Navigator award syllabus please see the NNAS website. The NNAS Silver Navigator award is accredited by the Scottish Credit & Qualifications Framework (SCQF) at Level 4, and 2 SCQF credit points are awarded on completion.

This course is split over 2 days and will be held in the White Peak area of the Peak District National Park. Being a very practical the course will be entirely outdoors. The exact location will be advised to participants ahead of the course.

The weather can be harsh in the Peak District at any time of year and can change quickly. Also, there will be times during the course where the group is not moving and, therefore, not generating any body heat. 


Therefore, to participate in the course you must have the following kit etc. with you as a minimum. If you are do not have any of the items we may be able to loan you them for the course, but please let us know in advance if this is the case.
