A short course of approximately 4/5,  two hour bi-weekly classes.  The group is small between 3-4 participants,  enabling the tutor to support each person individually with their learning.   Names are added initally to a short waiting list held by the group contact.  Courses are organised when there are enough participants to run effectively. 

The taught interactive sessions will include the practices required to confidently interpret or understand the geographic information portrayed on a map. Identifying the signs and symbols, terrain, roads, points of interest and distance. Together with the basics of using a compass and planned practical exercises.

Using this knowledge participants can become confident in planning routes and leading walks.

During and after the planned classes there will be opportunities to practice your new skills, either individually, in pairs or within an organised u3a walking group.
