The current regulations (Regulation 6) to fight COVID-19 state that up to 6 people can meet in the outdoors but that they do not stay overnight. This means that we can run our courses over 2 days. Until the regulations are relaxed further, we are proposing to run our courses on the following basis:
Total Group Size: 5 participants and 1 Instructor.
Days and Times: Saturdays 9am-5pm and Sunday 9am-2pm.
Participants must return home on the Saturday evening.
The entire syllabus will be covered.
Please contact us if you’d like to book a place on a course.
The NCFE has approved Survival School as a centre to run the Bushcraft, Survival and Wilderness Living Skills course, which has been accredited as Level 2. This course is a two weekend course run in either Devon or Staffordshire.
The first weekend, which is our Weekend Bushcraft and Survival Course, will teach you all you need to know and the second weekend is your assessment weekend. We would suggest a period of consolidation in between.
