An exclusive Live Webinar
Beekeeping Study Groups
Studying towards the various beekeeping examinations is greatly enlivened by working with others in a study group. Once established, these study groups can meet year after year, working towards a different Module or Assessment each time.
This webinar is aimed at those who wish to set up self-help study groups for those preparing for the BBKA Module Examinations and Husbandry Assessments (or Welsh and Scottish equivalents). We will explore how to establish and run effective study groups, and will consider resources that are available, various study approaches, the level of knowledge that is required, and how/where to get assistance and advice. We will also look at how to attract and include attendees who wish to learn within a group but who may not wish to attempt the assessments yet. Importantly, the study group leader does not need to be a subject matter expert.
