These are just to give you an idea of the length of the course, and the amount of time commitment required.  We may alter or change a few dates.

The Full Course will be structured into two sections;

A Introduction Course consisting of the first 5 sessions, costing   £70

A Main Course comprising the further 9 sessions, costing    £100
(You can only take the Main Course if you’ve already done the Taster Course)

We provide you with beekeeping overalls, veil, gloves etc, and you will have use of the Association’s bees, and equipment, so there is no need to purchase anything in order to do the Taster Course

The Introduction Course will give an overview of beekeeping, an opportunity to handle bees, and give you enough experience to decide if beekeeping is really for you.

The Main Course aims to give you enough knowledge, experience, and confidence to start beekeeping on your own.

As the course is subsidised by the High Weald Beekeeping Association, we expect you to join the club when you come on the Main Course, or when you get your own bees.

We are not asking for any money at this stage, this is simply a registration of interest in the next year’s course.  We finalise the bookings in December or January.
