Level 2 Assessment, Bushcraft, Survival and Wilderness Living CQ


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.
