National Navigation Award Scheme Tutor Award
£79 per person
A one day workshop on teaching navigation.
“…a really interesting, thought provoking and practical course… It managed to strike an excellent balance between reinforcing the core concepts of the NNAS scheme and giving lots of practical strategies and techniques for really enhancing navigation coaching…” John
The National Navigation Award Scheme Tutor Award is for those who either currently teach or want to teach navigation. It is also useful for those who are working towards a Hill and Moorland Leader or Mountain Leader qualification.
This teaching navigation workshop looks at skills and techniques that can be used to introduce or develop navigational skills both in the classroom and also outside. Throughout the day a wide variety of different techniques will be examined and the opportunity for candidates to share their experience and knowledge from their own practice will be given.
In addition to being a mandatory qualification for NNAS award providers, holders of the NNAS Tutor award are able to assist in the delivery of Bronze Navigator courses under the guidance of a NNAS course director.
Successful completion of the NNAS Tutor award workshop also counts as 1 CPD point for Mountain Training Association members.
Due to COVID 19, courses are cancelled until May at the earliest.

This Beyond the Edge course is non-residential to allow you to select between a thermarest or 5 star hotel as you require. There is lots of accommodation in the Hope Valley and we recommend The Sir William which offers BtE clients a discounted rate (code given on booking) and we often start courses from here. There are other local pubs, B&B’s and also YHA’s in the villages of Hathersage, Eyam and Castleton. Popular campsites include North Lees under Stanage Edge and Pindale Farm
This NNAS Tutor course is a gentle day so all you need is an ability to walk along paths and tracks.
If you are developing your experience in the outdoors, you could try a Mountain Leader Course, or test your navigation with a NNAS Gold course or try night navigation.
