IB PYP Model explaining the different components of the PYP
  • 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!
