Intermediate Studies


When the busy summer season ends and the bees are beginning to cluster for the winter months, beekeepers find the time to further their knowledge of the many varied aspects of apiculture.


NBKA offers the training apiary during the summer months for those looking to improve their techniques. During the “closed” season there is an opportunity available only to members to attend the series of winter lectures which run on Thursday evenings from October to January. These lectures are designed to underpin the studies of those wishing to take the BBKA Modular Exams.


For those wishing to venture beyond basic exploring modules 1 & 2.


Starting at 19.30 hrs on:

October 25th

November 1st, 8th, 15th and 29th

December 6th


Dates for 2019 - January 3, 10, 17 and 24.


There is also an informal study group for a small number of members who sign up to take the BBKA correspondence course designed to assist those studying to sit a designated Modular Exam.


Members wishing to know more about the study group and how it works, or the Winter Lectures, should contact the Training Officer.
