This research explores the constructs that teachers have of students at risk of exclusion from school. To date, little research has explored whether a Personal Construct Psychology (PCP) task to elicit constructs from the students about themselves has the power to alter the teachers’ constructs of said students. Five secondary students in Year 7 or 8, at risk of exclusion, completed a PCP task, Drawing the Ideal Learner (DIL). For each of the students, one teacher who knew the student well was interviewed on two separate occasions using semi-structured interviews. This qualitative social constructionist research utilises a PCP theoretical framework to ascertain whether these teachers believed DIL could provide information to inform them about how best to support the student by developing a shared understanding.
