Please note that the 2021 Beginner Beekeeping Course is now fully booked
The next Beginner Beekeeping course will begin in February 2022. This course has been developed for complete beginners, those with limited experience who wish to improve their knowledge or beekeepers who feel they need a refresher course. All lessons will be taught by experienced members of the association.
Successful completion of the course will provide all the knowledge, skills and information required by beginners to take the Basic Assessment of the British Beekeeping Association in 2023. The cost of taking this assessment is included in the course fee.
N.B. The current 2021 COVID-19 regulations mean that, at this time, we cannot accommodate students in our lecture room. Therefore, we will run virtual classes online. You will attend either the Monday group or the Tuesday group. Whilst we endeavour to offer students a choice of day, we may have to allocate places on a “first come, first served” basis. All course material will be available online, to download and print for each class (or should students be unable to attend a class due to isolation at any time) The course will continue online until further notice.
