Welcome to the NNAS

The National Navigation Award Scheme (NNAS) is a personal performance, non-competitive, incentive scheme for all ages to learn navigation skills and gain confidence to get out and enjoy the countryside.

NNAS courses are delivered throughout the country by over 500 providers.

* Would you like to enhance your enjoyment of the countryside?

* Would you like to develop sound navigation skills and practice including planning your own walking routes?

* Would you like to gain confidence at map reading whether the weather is clear or misty?

* In doing so, you could achieve a personal performance award in navigation at the NNAS Bronze, Silver or Gold Levels, validated to a national standard.
