Do you seek to learn how to respond to trauma with competence and confidence? With research-informed good practice?
Then our new professional development micro-credentials and postgraduate certificate could be just what you need!
This postgraduate programme is suitable for all professional backgrounds who are seeking to gain a deeper understanding of how to respond to adults and communities (including tamariki and rangatahi) who have experienced trauma.
Three new micro-credentials:
Courses can be taken one by one or as part of a 12-month Postgraduate Certificate in Responding to Trauma (subject to NZQA approval). From as little as 5 weeks to 12-months – you can start small and upgrade to the whole certificate later.
Designed for working professionals, these courses are available wholly online and part time, with teaching and learning through BTI’s dedicated online learning platform and using tools of remote working.
At BTI we have years of experience supporting students returning to education, who are balancing studying with working, and understand the demands that this brings. This unique modular approach to learning is designed to help and support you to be successful in achieving postgraduate qualifications through a manageable structured plan.
In collaboration with Māori cultural advisers and colleagues at BTI, the programmes, designed to commence following the Matariki celebrations, have been carefully developed to honour and include indigenous Māori knowledges. Based on the framework of Te Whare Tapa Wha, the courses take a holistic approach to learning by intentionally highlighting the importance of spirituality and whānau community as essential aspects of wellbeing and hauora.
At BTI, we recognise that we are created to not just engage with the social and physical aspects of our lives where we live and work, but also with the spiritual dimension. It is this unique aspect of our approach that informs our postgraduate study.
