IB Learner Profile
Perfil de la comunidad de aprendizaje del IB
As you can see from the model above, at the core of the IB is the “learner profile”. The IB Learner Profile is a long- term, holistic vision of education that underpins all three programmes and puts the student at the centre of everything we do. The learner profile is the IB mission statement translated into a set of learning outcomes for the 21st century. The ten aspirational qualities of the learner profile inspire and motivate the work of teachers, students and schools, providing a statement of the aims and values of the IB and a definition of what we mean by “international-mindedness”.
The learner profile unites us all with a common focus: on the whole person, as a lifelong learner.
It applies to us all – student, teacher, parent or administrator – because we are all continually learning!
