BTI has recently updated our ECE and Primary Teacher Education Conceptual Framework, which describes the core values, skills and knowledge that our graduates leave BTI with.
We seek to graduate early childhood and primary teachers who are considered “Wise educators – who are gracious, secure and teachable, and whose professional practice is relational, responsive, and transformative.”
