So what is this Blue Badge all about?
The Scottish Blue Badge Tourist Guide qualification is managed by the Scottish Tourist Guides Association (www.stga.co.uk) and consists of a 2 year training course. During the course, students complete a number of academic essays and practical coach and walking tour assessments. At the end of the course, there are rigorous practical exams in various regions of Scotland that require a high percentage score to pass.
Whilst our guides had a fabulous journey through the course, even the stressful bit before final exams, it wasn’t as bad as waiting an extra 9 months for MOBY to be published !
