NLB BEGINNERS' BEEKEEPING COURSE 2017 - NOW FULLY BOOKED

There will be a similar course in early 2018.

This course covers the main aspects of keeping bees and the beekeeping year.   It combines theory with practical beekeeping and is for people considering keeping bees in an urban location.   It is led and taught by a team of our experienced beekeepers.

The NLB Beginners’ Course runs for six weekly evening sessions of two hours each on the following Mondays: February 27th, March 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th and April 3rd 2017.   Followed by four practical sessions held on Sunday mornings in April and May at our teaching apiary near Kenwood House and Highgate Village.

There is no exam at the end of this course.

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.   More details will appear in a newsletter.

THE MODULES

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 education@beekeeping.org.uk for more details.
