The apprenticeship is made up of two programmes, one at level 3 and the other at level 4.
The level 3 programme consists of nine practical units that will be assessed on the job at your worksite over this season, followed by three theory units delivered at a three-day block course the following winter.
The second portion is our level 4 programme, which is made up of six practical units to be assessed on the job at your worksite the following season, and a further four theory units delivered at a five-day block course during winter.
You will have 11 months to complete level 3 and a further 10 months to complete level 4, the combination of the two makes up the two-year Apiculture Apprenticeship.
We also have level 2 Primary Skills (Apiculture) and Queen Bee Rearing (Level 4) programmes in the pipeline, which will help to build a strong pathway for the apiculture industry.
