A formal qualification in guiding is not mandatory. A full programme of training will be provided by Parliament. The new guide positions will be filled through thorough recruitment and selection practices, which includes an application, online testing, assessment days and interviews. This process will ensure that successful applicants have all the skills and qualities required to perform the role to the very high standards required.
