Supporting our students’ wellbeing is at the heart of what we do at BTI – growing great hearts as well as great minds.
We’re committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for our students, staff, and visitors to learn and work in.
We encourage and support students and staff to grow holistically and academically. This is part of our mission and values as an organisation. At the heart of BTI is our Christian worldview, and this means that our staff and students draw on Biblical sources, values and perspectives in every course. We also spend time developing habits and practices that will become patterns for life as a practitioner or leader.
Support for wellbeing of students really matters, and we have set up specific cohort mentors and support staff for students to reach out to.
We also support BISA, the student association, whose representatives from each class/year group can support fellow students, represent their voices during decision-making, and facilitating practical activities to support health and wellbeing.
Note: The TEC has established a Covid-19 Hardship fund for students whose lives and study have been disrupted by Covid-19 restrictions. Hardship means any suffering, deprivation or financial challenge that is affecting a student’s ability to access and continue with their study.
Our staff have a Health and Safety team who are here for everyone. They work across the organisation to ensure students and staff learn about safe work practices and understand what their roles and responsibilities are.
