About this Event

Bronze National Navigation Award Syllabus

· Navigate using a variety of maps and scales.

· Use 4 and 6 figure grid references with worded descriptions to define the position of a map feature and to locate a feature on the ground.

· Orientate the map using handrails, obvious point features and major landforms.

· Use linear features (e.g. paths, tracks, clear boundaries) as handrails in simple navigation exercises.

· Relate prominent landforms such as large hills and valleys to corresponding contour information on the map.

· Orientate the map by aligning a compass needle against grid north and be aware that magnetic variation causes an inaccuracy.

· Use an orientated map to confirm direction of travel.

· Use clearly identifiable features to confirm position along the route and to recognise when the target has been overshot.

· Measure horizontal distance on the map and estimate distance on the ground using timing, pacing and simple visual judgements e.g.100m.

· Plan and implement simple routes and navigation strategies based on the above skills.

· Recognise a navigation error within a few minutes and apply simple relocation techniques using handrails and prominent features.

· Demonstrate an awareness of local and national access issues, access legislation, personal responsibilities and the Countryside Code.

· Demonstrate appropriate knowledge of walking equipment, safety equipment and emergency procedures.
