Effective Learner Qualities

In 2014, Keilor Views Primary School established ‘Effective Learner Qualities’ (ELQs). These dispositions/qualities are based on highly regarded research that suggests by encouraging students to understand themselves as learners, and how to develop and employ particular learner qualities in the process of learning; this will support them to maximise their learning progress and achievement. Building resilient, capable and empathetic learners and citizens of the future. KVPS developed our six learner qualities in collaboration with students, staff and community.


These are:

  • Self Aware

  • Determined

  • Persist

  • Uses feedback

  • Reflect

  • Connect

Our school explicitly teaches, promotes and uses these ELQs across the curriculum.
