The Panel of Examiners

The RAD has a panel of over 200 examiners across 25 countries. Examiners undergo a demanding selection process followed by further training and quality assurance throughout their career, including regular seminars for standardisation, learning new work and discussions on a wide range of topics including unconscious bias, data protection, safeguarding, and new technologies.

Examiners undergo appropriate disclosure protocols according to their country of residence and adhere to the policies and procedures of the RAD Examinations Board, including equal opportunities and safeguarding.
