Each school wishing to introduce Orienteering will have different requirements, however,

are able to offer help and advice. Each one covers a different part of the country.
If in doubt which region you come under, contact the nearest one and they will advise/forward your requests.

how to deliver orienteering in a progressive way that meets the requirements of the appropriate
National Curriculum or the National Competition framework. School Sports Partnerships (SSP) may
wish to run courses. They are not expensive if arranged through PMs. Teacher Qualifications
