This is a great opportunity for people undertaking the Hill & Moorland Award or Mountain Leader qualification to consolidate their personal navigation skills and is a good refresher for anyone looking to brush up on their skills.
This day will give you a good grounding in the fundamentals of navigation and help to bridge the gap between hill and moorland and the summer ML scheme and support your journey towards more effective navigation
If there is demand for it on the day, there will also be opportunities to explore coaching navigation techniques, allowing you to present well pitched, structured and progressive teaching opportunities that are effective in improving the navigation of your groups and clients when out on the hill.
1:25,000, NW Lakes map and a mark 4 compass. Please bring other scales if you have them (1:40, 1:50) plus appropriate hill kit for a day out in November!
