Courses

Our education officer works hard in promoting the education side of our branch and encouraging our members to study for the full range of examinations and training that the BBKA has to offer. Hopefully this will lead our members to be better and more knowledgeable beekeepers.

We are pleased to announce that more members of our branch have successfully passed the “BBKA Basic Assessment” this year. Candidates had to have kept bees for at least 12 months.

Study groups have also been set up for members who wish to learn more from BBKA modules which follow on from the basic assessment. We are hopeful of more success this year . These study groups have proven a great way of learning and expanding your knowledge, and the exam is optional.
