The BBKA is working hard to mould a programme around it's membership to help support and solidify the hard work it's members already do. Our Schools Membership offers resources and insurance to School sites. 

The gold standard Junior Certificate, offered free to all school children in the UK, is the perfect benchmark to monitor and evaluate the impact the programme is making throughout the UK. It is also a wonderful addition to any University application or CV for the child who chooses to take it.

As part of this work, we are developing;-

Bees in the Curriculum (2.0) aimed at school teachers. Including teaching aids on insects, the honeybee colony, honey, beeswax, beekeeping, pollination and hints and tips on how to integrate the resources across the curriculum. This resources is suitable for Key Stages 1 & 2 and is currently being refreshed with funding money kindly given to us by Suttons Seeds.

Schools Pack aimed at Associations and Branches. Including flash cards, games and quizzes to get the children interested in bees and beekeeping. This pack is intended for use by members who visit schools and groups of young children (Key Stage 1 & 2) and to be added to and tailored so the user can really make the sessions their own. 

Our 'Course in the Case' (memory stick) is already available and is free to all schools and is suitable for Secondary School aged children. But we are currently seeking funding to improve and update this.
