BTC Supports Skilling beekeepers

Belgium Technical cooperation (BTC) in Uganda supports Skilling Beekeepers 

Belgium Technical Cooperation (BTC)is funding a one year skilling project in the Albertine region under the skills development fund, as part of the support to skilling Uganda strategy (SSU).  The project is being implemented at Nyabyeya Forestry College in Masindi district in partnership with TUNADO and Trias Uganda. The project aims at enhancing the employability of beekeeping graduates through a sustainable model of skilling college instructors and students (certificate and diploma) with entrepreneurship and hands-on practical apiculture skills. The initiative seeks to address the concerns of chain actors on the employability skills of college graduates. Skilling the graduates will ensure that they access employment in public and private sectors especially in  equipment manufacturing, value addition, apiary management among others. Graduates will also have the necessary skills to start up their own businesses and employ others. Increasing skilled personnel will lower the cost of extension services in the sector as well as assure quality extension service delivery. This will translate into increased adoption of beekeeping hence creating employment and source of income for youth and other farmers.

Implementation strategies 

1) Capacity building of instructors in practical beekeeping and didactics 2) Practical training of trainees in apiary management 3) equipment manufacturing and bee-product development 4) Provision of life and entrepreneurship skills through exposure and coaching 5) Provision of practical work based learning through an industrial training program with the private sector.
