Liverpool Blue Badge Course


The Liverpool City Region Blue Badge qualification covers the City of Liverpool and the Merseyside boroughs of Wirral, Sefton, Knowsley, St Helens as well as Halton.

  • Course status: Approved

The course aims to train those with a fascination for the Liverpool City Region to become professionally qualified and registered Blue Badge Tourist Guides for the region. Registered tourist guides are qualified by examinations set and administered by the Institute of Tourist Guiding (ITG), which is the government approved standard-setting and registration body for the tourist guiding sector in England, Northern Ireland and Jersey. Those students who are successful in these examinations will be awarded the Institute’s Blue Badge for “Liverpool City Region” and will be qualified to offer guided walks, site tours and coach tours to groups and individuals within the area of qualification. The Blue Badge is a symbol of this national qualification and provides recognised evidence of excellence in guiding skills. The course forms a foundation for continuing professional development in tourist guiding.
