The IB Learner Profile

The IB Learner Profile characterises how YOU should aim to be with regards to education and learning. It strives to teach people how to be ‘life long learners’ – education does not finish once your diploma has finished and it give you skills that should last you a life time.

It is also aimed at YOU (or everyone) – whether you are in grade 1, grade 5, grade 12, a teacher, a parent or an administrator or school governor. But what are the characteristics of the learner profile?

The learner profile asks IB learners to strive to become:

  • Inquirers
  • Knowledgeable
  • Thinkers
  • Communicators
  • Principled
  • Open – minded
  • Caring
  • Risk – takers
  • Balanced
  • Reflective

It is my intention to make my next few (10) blogs focus on how the characteristics of the learner profile relate to Chemistry.
