“Very interesting and informative, looking forward to starting the level one.”


This one day training course is written, designed and delivered by Andy our master beekeeper at The Tree Bee Society of Great Britain and the course is accredited and certificated by United Kingdom Rural Skills (UKRS). This training course is designed for anyone that is thinking about taking up beekeeping but is not sure where to begin, how much time and effort is involved or how much it all costs.

The course explains all about bees and the different types of equipment and hives that are available. This course is classroom based and makes an ideal gift for a birthday, anniversary, mother or fathers day and can be followed up by anyone wanting to progress their training further with our Level One and Level Two Beekeeping Courses. We limit the numbers of each of these courses to ten people so that they do not become overcrowded.
