Examinations Handbook is issued for the guidance of all those involved in the examinations of the Institute of Tourist Guiding (the Institute) and those preparing or conducting accredited guide training programmes. It sets out the Institute’s procedures for Blue Badge, Green Badge and White Badge examinations.
EXAMINATIONS HANDBOOK (version 2020.1)
The Examinations Handbook consists of the Handbook itself and various Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). At any one time there will only be one version of the Examinations Handbook and each SOP in operation.
All Standard Operating Procedures also form part of the Handbook and are publicly available, but for convenience they are indexed separately. Where there is a discrepancy between the Examinations Handbook and a Standard Operating Procedure, the Handbook will prevail.
Standard Operating Procedures – administration: detailing all the administrative procedures that allow the examinations to function.
Standard Operating Procedures - instruction packs: detailed instructions for people delivering the examinations, including “how to” packs for Examiners, Compilers, and Invigilators.
Standard Operating Procedures – examination structures: information about how examinations will be structured.
Standard Operating Procedures – policies: details of specific Institute policies that concern the delivery of examinations.
SOP 63 Policy on post-examination feedback to candidates (note this SOP will be added during 2021)
