In addition to our Taster day experience we are able to offer custom courses for beekeeping groups and other organisations interested in learning more about bees. We have experience with delivering courses covering all aspects of beekeeping from initial taster experience through to advanced courses for those beekeepers who would like to study for the BBKA examinations.
These are some of the topics we have provided training for in the past.
- Taster days
- We offer Taster days based on our own event but offered at your venue. I’ll bring everything needed in terms of beekeeping equipment, veils, etc and even a colony of bees!
- Introduction to Beekeeping
- Short courses for those who want to start beekeeping.
- Microscopy Taster day
- This is very popular with beekeeping associations. A one day event to give your members some experience with microscopes. No prior experience necessary.

- As a Master beekeeper, holder of the NDB, and formerly an assessor for the BBKA I have lots of experience of the BBKA assessment process which I am happy to pass on to your association members.
