Welcome to Academic Affairs!   

Academic Affairs oversees all academic, upgrading and professional development programmes at BTVI.  We help to ensure that BTVI accomplishes its mission to provide technical and vocational education and training opportunities which enable individuals to be globally competitive and economically independent. Our Deans, Heads of Departments and instructors are committed to meeting all students where they are and taking them to where they want to go.  Our teaching and learning experiences provide the knowledge and skills which help students achieve their academic and career goals. With the generous support of industry partners and our focus on workforce readiness, we provide internship, apprenticeship and attachment opportunities which help students apply practical skills through on-the-job training and experience.  Also, all BTVI students have the opportunity to sit internationally recognised industry certifications which help to bolster advancements in their careers.

Our associate of applied science degree programmes help students acquire the knowledge, skills and proficiencies of a specific trade or career and are designed for persons seeking training and employment.  Additionally, courses in these programmes may be transferred into a bachelor’s degree programme.

Our diploma and certificate programmes provide intensive, focused training in a specific trade, industry or specialty. They help students develop the core skills and competencies needed to perform practical tasks in a vocational field or career. These programmes are designed for persons seeking employment or seeking to upgrade existing skills or learn new ones.

Through our dual enrolment, high school students get a head start on their technical or vocational careers by taking technical and vocational courses while in high school. Upon graduation from high school, these students enter the workforce with employability skills or matriculate directly into a BTVI certificate, diploma or degree programme.

Our Professional Development Department offers programmes, courses and activities for the continued growth and development of professional skills in addition to options for licensure in identified trades.

We are pleased to welcome you into our BTVI family. We look forward to helping you achieve your goals.
