Te Uho o te Nikau Graduate Profile
Graduate profiles are one way that a school can communicate a shared understanding of what a future-oriented learner looks like. Graduate profiles describe skills, knowledge, and attitudes that students will need to develop in order to participate in a range of life contexts beyond school.
As our community grew, our graduate profile grew with it. We aligned our school values and our beliefs around learner dispositions. Under each school value, we co-wrote three goals. We then created three indicators for success next to each goal.
We currently collect real time evidence of these skills, knowledge and attitudes on HERO. We call these the Graduate Profile learning posts. We are also in the process of designing a name for this profile - something that captures the potential and light we see in each of our students.
