Clement joined BTI in January 2014 as an Educator in the Social Work programme. Prior to this, he worked as a Care & Protection Social Worker in Child Youth & Family (CYF) within South Auckland District.
Originally from Zimbabwe, Clement has travelled a geographical and professional diverse journey: a Teacher, Teacher Trainer and Lecturer in Applied Linguistics (in Zimbabwe) and as a Lecturer in Postgraduate Development (at the University of Cape Town in South Africa).
Clement is interested in the relationship between Critical Discourse Analysis in Social and Community Work practice. Inspired by the view that creative writing has a place in intellectual production, Clement has previously published a collection of poems (Before the Next Song) and several short stories (most included the Zimbabwean anthology, No More Plastic Ball).*
We are delighted to have Clement as part of the BTI team!
