Graduate Profile

Last week in our Professional Learning Groups (PLuGS) we were looking at updating the school Graduate Profile. What is our vision of what a graduate of Tamaki College would like  when they leave school? What qualities, skills, competencies, experiences and qualifications would ready them for participating fully in society and working in the "real" world. What would make them lifelong learners?

The University of Auckland has 3 levels to its graduate profile:
Themes - generic capabilities
Capabilities - knowledge, skills, abilities & values

Edutopia suggests reflecting on:

  1. What are the most important cognitive capacities that should underpin your students' learning?
  2. Which personal competencies are valued most at home & school
  3. Which interpersonal competencies are most essential for collaboration and community in your school spaces.
