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.
