This new handbook, by Nigel Williams, supports the Tutor Training Course for the National Navigation Award Scheme and complements the NNAS Outdoor Navigation Handbook for Tutors.
The contents have been developed to support anyone teaching navigation, in schools and colleges, youth and voluntary organisations or training leaders and instructors in the professional outdoor sector.
“This handbook helps establish a new way of introducing and teaching navigation. Nigel has inspired hundreds of DofE leaders to use their teaching to develop their own navigation. This is a must for anyone teaching navigation to any age group.”
Alex Cumming, Assistant Director DofE Award – Scotland
