who can apply their knowledge
- to develop the ability to use their knowledge to plan, to analyse, to think critically, logically and creatively, to reflect upon and evaluate ideas, options, and potential solutions to problems, and to make and implement decisions.
who communicate effectively
- to learn to convey clearly and fluently their knowledge, understanding, reasoning and decisions.
who can work independently
- to take responsibility for, and become self-reliant in, their learning and their work.
who are collaborative

who value ethical behaviour

who connect across boundaries
