BTC was founded in 2008 through a partnership with Singapore’s National Institute of Education (NIE) in which the NIE provided a curriculum and policy foundation for the operation of the BTC. After a decade, the BTC is forging its own identity with the continued support of the Ministry of Education (MoE) as the sole employer of all BTC graduates, as well as the Office of the First Deputy Prime Minister and the Economic Development Board of Bahrain.
