The courses are aimed at beekeepers of several years’ experience, who have enough sound beekeeping knowledge and experience to pass on and who are, or plan to be, actively involved in teaching and mentoring new beekeepers.

Applicants should have gained their SBA Basic Beekeeping certificate (BB).

The aims of these courses are:

  • To help beekeeping tutors understand how adults learn
  • To help them deliver information more effectively
  • To enable them to pass on their beekeeping expertise to others so that their students become knowledgeable and competent beekeepers

There are two, two-day courses. Tutors will be Tony Harris NDB and Margaret Murdin NDB.

The Central belt course will be held at the Scottish Natural Heritage Conference Centre at Battleby, Redgorton, just north of Perth PH13EW, on Monday 11th and Tuesday 12th November 2019.

Price is £95 for the two days for SBA members, tea/coffee and a light lunch will be provided.

These courses are subsidised by the Scottish Government, your local association may want to help with the £95 fee, as the skills obtained will help you to mentor beginners at local level. Number of places are limited.
