Young Beekeepers

This area is in its infancy (apologies) – but PDBKs hope to add more to help and inspire young members.

In the meantime, go and explore the BBKA’s kids pages for info, games and activities  http://www.bbka.org.uk/kids

The International Meeting of Young Beekeepers has a Facebook page  https://www.facebook.com/ImybInternationalMeetingOfYoungBeekeepers/timeline

Petersfield has sent two young beekeepers, Tex and Verity, in the last few years. They would be only too keen to tell you about the brilliant time they had. It could be you next year!

Junior Certificate

Under 18 and want to test your beekeeping knowledge? Then this could be the one for you.

The Junior certificate consists of 4 elements

  • 10 minutes of oral questions
  • A short written paper
  • Making a frame
  • Present your beekeeping diary

This examination is intended to meet the requirements of schools, Scout and Guide groups together with those not qualified to enter for the Basic Assessment. Additionally, it is intended that the examination will reflect the candidates interest of apiculture and encourage them to go forward to the next examination, the Basic Assessment.

in the meantime – please send in links for interesting sites.
