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 enrol on the correspondence course run by the BBKA and work 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 are 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 have a good grounding in the basics of beekeeping and are actively keeping bees. You can study for the modules before you have taken the Basic.
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.

Join the Group
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. Also you don't have to take the exams to come to the group.
