ABT STUDENT CREDO

As a proud student of ABT, I acknowledge and accept the schools TRADITION, ETHOS & VALUES; and fully commit myself to uphold the highest standard of professionalism in my daily conduct as student and ambassador for wildlife conservation in Africa, during my studies at ABT and after. 

I believe that I'm an individual with potential and talent; and I fully commit myself to further develop my skills and abilities to positively serve wildlife conservation, my fellow students and the communities I find myself in and that relies on me... faith, passion, determination and commitment will be the driving forces behind all my actions, as it will ultimately lead me to my desired destination and destiny in life - the start of a legacy in conservation with my name written on it!

* STUDENT UNIFORM:
Students' general appearance directly influences the way in which a school is perceived in terms of the norms and standards advocated and upheld by that institution.  It creates an undeniable sense of entity within the School context and contributes positively towards issues such as discipline, orderliness and goal-orientated academic achievement. All learners are expected to wear full uniform from Monday to Friday. Uniforms should be kept neat and tidy, clean and in good condition at all times. ABT will contribute 50% towards the purchase price of uniforms issued on registration, where after students can order additional clothing items directly through our head offices.


* CODE OF CONDUCT:
ABT provides for a community of students, faculty and staff involved in learning, teaching, research and other activities. In accordance with industry requirements and standards, all members of this community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that contributes positively to an environment in which respect, civility, diversity, opportunity and inclusiveness are valued, so as to assure the success of both the individual and the community. The Student Code of Conduct reflects a concern for these values and tries to ensure that students can make use of and enjoy the activities, facilities and benefits of the school without undue interference from others.

* SCHOOL TERMS & CYCLES:
ABT works roughly on a ‘six week on two weeks off’ academic cycle structure.
