Training Course

September 2023 Update

The next training course likely to take place in our region will be a GREEN BADGE course in Canterbury in 2023/2024.

There is currently (2023) a BLUE BADGE course running in SE England. Whilst it is likely to be a couple of years before the next Blue Badge course can be run, we are inviting expressions of interest in future training.

GREEN BADGE guides offer walking tours in one town only (in our region Canterbury or Chichester). BLUE BADGE guides are regional guides who cover a far wider area (in our case the counties of Kent, Surrey and East and West Sussex) and can offer coach and walking tours throught the region of qualification.

Tourist guides can be any age or nationality. The main requirement is that you enjoy meeting new people and have enthusiasm for the great sights, history, landscape and experiences that our region has to offer.

If you are interested in training as a SE England tourist guide (Blue or Green Badge), we’d love to hear from you. Please download and complete the enquiry form (offered both in Word 2013 format or pdf format) and e-mail it to our Secretary at the address given on the form. Your enquiry will be held on a waiting list and you will be contacted as soon as the next relevant course details become available.
