What is it like to study this course and how will I be assessed?
This is a very practical hands on course where you learn by doing. It consists of 2 x classroom sessions and 1 x all day navigation walk on Dartmoor, where we will be able to put theory into practice in the Outdoors.
This is a very friendly and informal Course, where each thing that you do, builds on what you did before. There is more time to chat out on the walk and we all get to know each other. There is a great atmosphere and no one is afraid to ask if they don’t understand something. Although it is only a short course, you will learn a lot in a short time and it is nicely paced.
* We have a choice of Saturday or Sunday for the Walk in the autumn and spring and walk according to the weather forecast. The walk is usually between 10am-4pm.
