Beekeeping Courses from Introduction to the more advanced

Each of our branches runs a range of beekeeping courses from a basic introduction to beekeeping to more advanced study groups to prepare course attendees for the BBKA modules. You may however find that your own Branch is not running the course that you are looking for so it is worth remembering that members may attend the meetings and courses being run by any of the other Branches of Lancashire Beekeepers.

Here are the Education Coordinators for each Branch:

The L&NW Education Co-ordinators consist of:


Viki Cuthbertson Lancs Co-ordinator

Robina Johnstone Lancs Exam Secretary

Examinations & Assessments

The BBKA Examination Board offer written and practical examinations to educate and set standards for beekeepers.

The starting point and entry requirement for all other examinations and assessments is the Basic Assessment in Beekeeping; this practical assessment tests the basic skills and knowledge of the craft.

Correspondence Courses are available to help prepare for the Basic, the Microscopy or for the Modules.

Most branches run study groups to assist with study for the modules. 

For more information please see your Branch Education Officer listed above.
