6 6 Proposal only Independent enquirers Focus: Young people process and evaluate information in their investigations, planning what to do and how to go about it. They take informed decisions, recognising that others have different beliefs and attitudes. Young people  identify questions to answer and problems to resolve  plan and carry out research, appreciating the consequences of decisions  explore issues, events or problems from different perspectives  analyse and evaluate information, judging its relevance and value  consider the influence of circumstances, beliefs and feelings on decisions and events  support conclusions, using reasoned arguments and evidence

7 7 Proposal only Creative participators Focus: Young people think creatively by generating and exploring ideas, making original connections. They try different ways to tackle a problem, working with others to find imaginative solutions and outcomes that are of value. Young people  generate ideas and explore possibilities  ask questions to extend their thinking  connect own and others’ ideas and experiences in inventive ways  question own and others’ assumptions  try out alternatives or new solutions and follow ideas through, when valuable  adapt ideas as circumstances change

8 8 Proposal only Reflective learners Focus: Young people evaluate their strengths and limitations, setting themselves realistic goals with criteria for success. They monitor their own performance and progress, inviting feedback from others and making changes to further their learning Young people  assess themselves and others, identifying opportunities and achievements  set goals with success criteria for their development and work  review progress, acting on the outcomes  invite feedback and deal positively with praise, setbacks and criticism  evaluate experiences and learning to inform future progress

9 9 Proposal only Team-workers Focus: Young people work confidently with others, adapting to different contexts and taking responsibility for their own part. They listen to and take account of different views. They form trusting relationships, resolving issues to reach agreed outcomes. Young people  co-operate with others to work towards common goals  reach agreements, managing discussions to achieve results  adapt behaviour to suit different roles and situations  show fairness and consideration to others  take responsibility, showing confidence in themselves and their contribution  provide constructive support and feedback to others

10 10 Proposal only Self-managers Focus: Young people organise themselves and their learning, showing commitment to self-improvement. They actively embrace change, responding positively to new priorities and looking for challenges and opportunities.
