Are you a beginner looking to learn the ins and outs of beekeeping? The courses available at The National Beekeeping Centre are perfect for you! Keep bees, build hives or even get close to bees for the first time! From beginners to more experienced keepers, this centre is the place for you!
Beekeeping is not as hard as it seems and there are many sources of information for new beekeepers, although the best way to learn is to gain knowledge from experienced keepers! It is advised to join any local beekeeping associations and take part in an introductory course! There are plenty of opportunities for these introduction sessions at The National Beekeeping Centre! Come along and try out one of the one-day taster courses and find out what is involved with beekeeping!
Not only are there the one-day taster sessions for beginners, but for those who would like to buy their own bees in the future, there is a two-day weekend course available! With both of these courses, there is a healthy mix of lecture room sessions and apiary work with the bees themselves. All participants will be under the supervision and guidance of experienced keepers and will be provided with protective gear for the practical work!
