Yesterday, BTI officially launched the new School of Social Practice. Programmes within this school are professionally recognised and NZQA accredited. Dr. James Arkwright and Dr. Dominic Chilvers have both taken up new roles within the School, Dr James Arkwright as role as Head of School and Dr Dominic Chilvers as Social Work Professional Leader. They are supported by a professional team of knowledgeable, skilled and relational educators, whose teaching practice is informed by their previous experience in the field as counsellors or social workers.
There was a good mix of staff, students, alumni and special guests present at the launch and the feedback has been very positive. Thank you to all that attended and to those who worked behind the scenes to ensure the event was a success.
