Learner profile

The IB has identified a set of ten attributes for the learner profile in order to nurture active, compassionate, and lifelong learners. These IB learner profile attributes, illustrated below, are at the heart of all four IB programmes and represent the IB’s mission in action.

Many of the learning experiences students engage in during a unit help them develop the IB learner profile attributes. These may also be developed outside of lessons, for example, through activities in their homeroom or outside of school.

The resource featured here contains inspirational posters of real-life heroes – identifying the learner profile attributes they exhibit – and connects the work they do to the UN SDGs. You may like to use these in your classrooms to have students to actively engage with changemakers around the world and reflect on how they might change the world themselves!
