This resource is designed to support teachers to help their learners develop the skills, attitudes and behaviours required to experience successful learner agency.  It’s all about making the key competency of “Managing Self” visible and well understood by learners, so they can take increasing responsibility for and ownership of their learning.  It can be used to help teachers identify their learners’ strengths and priorities as learning agents - and therefore what they need to focus on in the classroom, while also helping learners to self evaluate and know what they can do for themselves to become a more resilient, independent learning agent.   

There are 5 KEY SKILLS covered in this resource:   Resilient, Independent Learning Agents:

  1. Take responsibility for managing myself
  2. Set goals and make plans
