For students to thrive they need to become expert learners. They need to acquire a body of knowledge, skills, attributes and values that enable them to adapt and contribute in an ever-changing environment.
The skills, or capabilities for learning, include the basics of literacy, numeracy and the use of information and communication technology. More than this, they also encompass broader social skills of communication, collaboration and ethical behaviour and the ability to perform in an intercultural environment.
Today, the College is excited to launch a seven-part video series that outlines how Scotch Oakburn College is tackling this subject so that students thrive in the 21st Century.
In our first video, hear from College leaders as they unpack what a Learner Profile is and why it is so important.
