At FIBKA we believe in the importance of education for beekeepers and aim to develop the knowledge of beekeeping in Ireland to the highest standards. Over the past few years, we have developed a New Education Framework which will gradually replace the older exam-based system.
February 2022 saw the launch of Stage 2 of the New Education Framework; the other 3 stages will follow on a phased basis. This phased approach will allow for the gradual integration of the old and new education systems. We look forward to working with all affiliated Associations to make sure that this new education system is of the highest standard and accessible to all beekeepers.
Education for Junior and Senior Schools continues to be supported by the programmes available via the Young Beekeepers area of our website.
