Beekeeping for Beginners: Theory / Practical
We offer an exciting and engaging training programme for anyone wanting to gain essential theoretical knowledge and practical skills in beekeeping. Our training “Beekeeping for Beginners”, comprises both theory and practical sessions.
A copy of the training material is provided to each candidate after the session along with a certificate of attendance at the end of the course.
For those who have completed the theory course as this is where they start to apply their knowledge. Bee-suits will be made available to those on the course for its duration but individuals will need to provide their own suitable footwear (wellington boots or similar). Held during the warmer months when the hives can be opened we will open the hive over several sessions to see how the colony has developed and understand the lifecycle of this super-organism. This provides the candidates a chance to build on the theory component and develop confidence with the bees. Practical procedures will be explained, demonstrated and then undertaken working both with the bees and within the apiary.
On completion of the course each candidate will receive a certificate of attendance.
Candidates must have completed the Beekeeping for Beginners – theory course before undertaking the practical sessions. Children under the age of 16 must be confirmed with us beforehand to ensure that a child sized bee-suit is available for them and accompanied by a fee-paying adult.
This course takes place at our training apiary at Yealand Conyers.
