Our annual Beginner's Course is now well under way. Our next Beginner's Course will start in March 2013. Places are still available. If you want to be put on the waiting list please contact the Education Secretary by click to email.
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 likely to be £100 which includes a copy of ‘Starting Out with Bees’ by John Williams.
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 by click to email 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 by click to email.
