This year's Beginner's Course has now finished. Our next Beginner's Course will start in March 2014. If you would like to join the course please contact the Education Secretary at email@example.com.
The course covers the main aspects of keeping bees and is taught by a group of our experienced beekeepers. There is no exam at the end of this course. It will run for six weekly evening sessions of two hours each plus four practical sessions at our teaching apiary near Kenwood House, Highgate. The cost of the course is £100 which includes a beekeeping book.
THE BASIC ASSESSMENT IN BEEKEEPING
Following on from our Beginner’s Beekeeping course the BBKA “Basic Assessment in Beekeeping” provides a way of confirming your knowledge and skill in handling bees. You need to have kept bees for a year and know about bee diseases in order to take the assessment.

Once you have passed the Basic Assessment, there are seven modules of study (there is no Module 4). We recommend that you form a group to study one of these modules or work towards them on an individual basis.
Information on the “Basic Assessment” & “Modules” including the course syllabuses can be downloaded from the BBKA website BBKA Education Information. Contact our Education Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
For those with some beekeeping experience, should you have any requests for further practical or theoretical studies, please contact the Education Secretary at email@example.com.
