Enhance your enjoyment of being in the outdoors by working towards Nationally validated awards and certifictes.


National Navigation Award Bronze / Silver:

Develop your confidence with a map and compass and work towards achieveing your 'National Navigation Award' Bronze or Silver Award. For younger groups I can also offer the 'Young Star Navigator Awards'. These certificates are deal for famillies, beginners, Schools and Scout & Guide group  


Bespoke Training & Preparation for Awards:

Instructing and teaching in the outdoors is extremely rewarding. For those working through the available award schemes and certifications it can be difficult and at times confusing to identify the appropriate assessment pathways.


Having worked through different NGB award schemes, and having seen the development of current syllabi, I am suitably experienced to be able to offer support, gudance and training. This can be tailored to your needs and I am all to happy offer advice to those considering qualifications.


For those undertaking the CWA, CWLA, SPA, ML(summer) or preparing for MIA training. I offer full mentoring and professional development opportunities.

Professional Development

Hill Skills & Mountain Skills Scheme Courses:

These 2 day courses are ideal for the keen walkers looking to develop all aspects of their skills for the outdoors. Both are a practical introduction aiming to equip participants with the basic knowledge and essential safety skills required to start pursuing their own participation in hill and mountain walking as a leisure time activity.
