One of the key objectives of GBKCIO is to educate and promote a high standard of Beekeeping. To this aim, we provide a wide range of educational services and support to our members and outside organisations who wish to promote all aspects of honey bee welfare.

From school visits and taster days for individuals, through to help and support of our members to gain their  Master Beekeepers accreditation we can help you to reach your goal in supporting honey bees.

Educational Activites

Taster Sessions
- A two hour session where individuals can experience the thrill of Beekeeping
Beginners Course
Each February, GBKCIO run an "Introduction to Beekeeping Course" with the objective at the end to give an individual the knowledge and the confidence they need to manage their own hive of bees.
Module Training
To take your skill of Beekeeping to the next level, GBKCIO also run module training sessions.
GBKCIO can help you with your studies.
School visits
Our members will come to your school and talk about the importance of bees and beekeeping.
