Keeping you informed of the latest news about BAPT

Introducing our new website

Welcome to the new BAPT website!

 

I’m excited to inform you of the launch of BAPT’s new website co-designed by a focus group of BAPT members to make it easier for members and non-members to find information, engage and network with other members and stay up-to-date with events.

Please take a few minutes to read about the changes and what BAPT members need to do by 30 April 2024.

Director of Digital Projects

What do I need to know?

  • This new website launches in early February 2024. 

  • The new website address is https://www.personality-type.uk/. It is recommended to use Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge web browser to view the website. There is a known issue with the Wix website platform and Apple Safari web browsers in which logos and images do not properly load on the website. 

  • The old website will be discontinued from 1 May 2024.

  • The old and new websites will run concurrently for a short transition period from 1 February to 30 April 2024.
