Bethlehem Institute takes Long Term View On PBRF

Bethlehem Institute takes Long Term View on Research Assessment

Media Release – 23 April 2004

“Bethlehem Institute is a maturing institution having celebrated 10 years of quality tertiary education provision and graduates. Our ranking is no surprise to us as the current PBRF survey results reflect the research output during the time of establishment and formation of the Bethlehem Institute. As we have matured our focus has broadened from the development and teaching of quality degree programmes to encompass the nurture of our emerging research culture,” said Lyn Lewis, Dean and CEO of Bethlehem Institute.

Bethlehem Institute is a Christian Private Provider in the Bay of Plenty, registered, approved and accredited with the New Zealand Qualifications Authority for diplomas and degrees in teaching (Early Childhood, Primary & Secondary) and counselling and family.

“Unlike many providers in the Tertiary Education Sector, including some teacher education providers, polytechnics and other TEO’s, we chose to place a stake in the ground and stand up to be counted to signal our valuing of research. We did this knowing that we would not fare well comparably at this time. However what is important to the Institute, in terms of research, is not where we are but where we are going.”

“We look forward to the publishing of the 2006 PBRF survey results knowing that as we continue to grow and develop not only the researchers of today but also those of tomorrow, our future ranking will reflect this commitment.”
