Social, practical and memorable personality insights
The personality insights framework at its heart makes Persona Life Skills unique.
Designed specifically for young people, Persona helps students understand that everyone has a mix of personality styles influencing how we think, communicate and behave – which can change rapidly, especially when we are young.
Our technology enhanced curriculum guides students in using the framework – built upon solid behavioural science evidence – to develop social-emotional life skills, helping them adapt to life challenges, in turn boosting their wellbeing and employability.
