This Assessment and Training Package is a Competence-Based Education and Training
(CBET) tool and consists of three major parts:
0.1 PART I: The Occupational Profile (OP) of a BEE KEEPER. This Occupational
Profile which was reviewed by Bee keepers practicing in the world of work mirrors
the duties and tasks that Rabbit farmers are expected to perform.
0.2 PART II: Training Modules in the form of guidelines to train bee keepers both on
the job as well as in training centres (or combinations of both venues of learning).
The Training Modules herein have been reviewed basing on the Occupational
Profile and hence are directly relevant for employment.
0.3 PART III: Assessment Instruments in the form of performance (Practical) and
written (theory) test items that can and should be used to assess whether a person
complies with the requirements of employment as a BEE KEEPER. These
assessment instruments were reviewed jointly by job practitioners (Bee keepers)
and instructors based on the occupational profile and training modules.
