What does ‘success’ look like to a BTI student? Is it the ability to support family, start a dream career in teaching, counselling or social work, or the ability to serve and transform the lives of others? It is; but for some it’s also about raising one’s own confidence after being out of study for many years, building new connections when children fly the nest or the challenge of gaining a new or first qualification at tertiary level.
With 69%* of BTI students enjoying the lifestyle balance of studying from where they live or work, coming onsite to Tauranga for ‘intensive blocks’, it’s critical that we really get to know them as people and walk alongside them as they study. We want our students to achieve success and believe that the key to this success is encouraging a relational learning culture. As BTI Dean, Dr Andrew Smith says, “Positive relationships are the soil in which transformation grows.”
