NDB Beekeeper Courses
Published 22.Aug.2011, 9:09pm
The successful series of National Diploma in Beekeeping (NDB) Short Courses delivered earlier this year are to be offered again, with some new titles, during the coming months.
These two-day, intensive courses concentrate on relatively narrow aspects of the “beekeeping“ syllabus and, working in small groups, are intended for anyone who wants to get to the detail! They are particularly suitable for those who are involved in teaching within their local associations; one course dealing specifically with teaching skills appropriate to beekeeping. Led by NDB-qualified tutors in modern, carefully chosen locations, these courses offer a challenging environment in which useful discussion and real learning can take place.
These intensive two-day courses are limited to small group sizes and will be available for £140 per person; this includes all consumables, full course handouts, refreshment breaks and a light lunch on both days.
Students enrolling on the “Teaching for Beekeeping Tutors” course may be eligible for a £115 subsidy from the Fera Healthy Bees Plan – further details are available upon request.
15 courses are offered in three regional training centres during the coming autumn and winter; more courses and centres may be added. Full details, including dates, venues, course content and application forms may be found on the NDB website: www.national-diploma-bees.org.uk
