Avenor Student Profile

What does learning look like at Avenor? What are the landmarks of meaningful learning among students, but also among teachers and parents?

In 2020, an enthusiastic group of leaders, teachers, students and parents created together a new learning profile.

The design thinking process proved to be a real, authentic and interactive model of learning (Project-Based Learning) starting from a real concern of the Avenor community.

The Avenor Learner Profile is an aspirational profile that brings together key characteristics of the Avenor student, but also an inspirational profile, which contributes to the development of a common language of learning in which the voice of the students is heard and everyone has the opportunity to discover alternative routes in the world of knowledge.

The 7 traits of the Avenor Learner Profile are: inner balanced, independent and connected, active, positive citizen, explorer, creative thinker, effective communicator and future ready.
