Steve Rose runs Beekeeping Courses from his small holding near Bala in Wales.
There are two courses.

INTRODUCTION TO BEEKEEPING –  Specifically for new or potential beekeepers

IMPROVERS’ COURSEFor existing but inexperienced beekeepers and those who wish to prepare for the BBKA or WBKA basic Assessment.
Also held in North Wales are special courses  organised by BIBBA. Both practical and theory. These limited places fill very quickly ( because they are very good and well run by  knowledgable beekeepers), so book early to avoid disappointment.
