The NNAS is an incentive scheme designed to help people develop their skills from basic understanding at Bronze through to Silver and Gold levels. Based in the Yorkshire Dales this includes how to use a compass, timings, routes and planning, kit packing, accident care and first aid, amongst more skills. This is a brilliant idea for anyone keen to learn essential outdoor skills.
The NNAS is an incentive scheme designed to help people develop their skills from basic understanding at Bronze level through to a higher level of skills at Silver and Gold level. On the Bronze/Silver courses we teach the Award at Silver level as in our experience people coming with even the basic skills can develop them to the required level by the second day. Often people just need reassurance that what they are doing is right and maybe to gain some extra knowledge to build their confidence up. If on the Sunday someone is not at the Silver level we assess them at Bronze. By working with small groups we are able to let people concentrate on the areas they need to develop the most.
Between November and February we start an hour later on the Saturday so that we work into poor daylight and dusk, just in case the weather is too nice! It gives people the chance to practice their skills in the difficult conditions when you need your confidence in the map and compass.
The course includes - Use of compass • Pacings • Timings • Grid References • Route Planning • Escape Routes •Kit Needed • What to do if you get lost • What to do if you have an accident • Basic First Aid • How to get help • How to help yourselves
These courses start at our base at Stainforth, near Settle. Over a cup of tea or coffee we look at the NNAS syllabus and find out what your experience of walking is and which skills in particular you need to learn or just improve on. We go over some of the basics indoors before going out for a walk for the rest of the day. On the Sunday we meet up at a location agreed the previous evening before spending the day building on the skills used the previous day and introducing more micro navigation. The day will include an assessment period before going back to a cafe or our base for a final debrief and the presentation of certificates.
