Great Hearts and Minds

Our mission is to provide Christ-centred, biblically informed professional preparation, development and research

At BTI, we believe that people teach, counsel and relate out of who they are. Because of that, we are interested in the growth of our students, not only towards a professional goal, but towards reaching their God-given potential.

Programmes
of study

Study Teaching, Counselling, Social Work, Postgraduate or level 4 certificate

Social Work and Counselling

If you seek a career where you can journey with others and advocate for them, then our social work and counselling programmes are for you. You will dive deep into your own experiences of life, be equipped with tools and frameworks to help others, engage biculturally, and have significant hands-on experience to prepare you for your profession.

NZ Certificate in Study and Career Preparation

If you’re interested in studying but are worried about whether or not you’ve got what it takes to be a successful student, we’ve got what you need. The NZ Certificate in Study and Career Preparation exists to equip students with increased knowledge, skills and confidence in their ability to succeed academically.

Teacher Education

We know that the first 1,000 days in the lives of our tamariki are the most important. So if you have a big heart for shaping children’s minds, a dream for getting the best out of young learners, a commitment to being gracious, secure and teachable, an awareness of Jesus as the Master Teacher, then you should study early childhood, primary or secondary education at BTI.

Postgraduate

If you’re already working but want to better integrate your faith with your profession, then our postgraduate programmes allow you to do just that. You’ll learn from top research active staff, engage with other students across Aotearoa New Zealand, and have your eyes opened to new and exciting ways to think about your values and how they inform your profession.
