Module Study Group
In 2016 we started a Module Study Group to help a group of members prepare to take Module 1 in March 2017. The group met in members homes.
We enrolled on the correspondence course run by the BBKA and worked through the 5 papers. These are not exam questions but are designed to cover the whole syllabus. The questions were shared out between the group. The completed papers were emailed to the tutor who "marked" them. No actual mark but comments added.
It is necessary to have passed the Basic Assessment before sitting the Modules (or any other BBKA exams/assessments) so members of the group already had a good grounding in the basics of beekeeping and were actively keeping bees.
As is usual, when a group of beekeepers get together, there was lots of swapping stories and experiences. It's a pleasant way to learn more about bees and beekeeping.
Six members of the group took Module 1 in March 2017 and they all passed. Well done.

Module Study Group- Module 2
The group now meets in a meeting room at Tesco's Hucknall. Kindly arranged by Jan Lees.
The group are currently working through the correspondence course papers and will be moving to practice past papers in readiness for the exam in November.
Module Study Group- Module 3 (Honey Bee Pests, Diseases and poisoning)
We plan to continue working through the modules. We will announce when this group will start on the website and at the monthly meetings. Any beekeeper with the Basic assessment is welcome to join the group. There is no obligation to take the exam but we will aim for the March 2018 sitting.
You do not have to join the group to take the modules and they can be taken in any order (apart from module 8). If you are interested in taking any modules speak to me.
