Designed for the classroom, blended and remote learning, the Persona Life Skills e-learning platform is hosted in the cloud.


Easily accessible with just a browser on Chromebook, Surface, laptop, PC or tablet, our ready-made modules, built-in onboarding and real time guidance, mean any teacher can facilitate the learning and reduce their lesson-planning workload. And there’s no marking.

E-learning your students will use
– for life.

The personality insights approach at its heart makes Persona Life Skills unique. Our social, practical and memorable framework helps students understand that everyone has a mix of personality styles influencing how we think, communicate and behave – and that this often changes over time, especially when we are young.


Our technology enhanced curriculum guides students in using the framework – which is built upon solid behavioural science research evidence – to develop social and emotional life skills, helping them adapt to different situations and build more productive relationships, which in turn boosts their wellbeing.


Improved wellbeing means more agency and purpose, better academic attainment, greater employability and more life satisfaction.

Who we work with

We love the impact Persona is already having in the life of our school community. Just having a shared language we use when talking about our self is a huge step in the right direction. I would recommend more schools take a look!

As someone who is keen on personal development, I find Persona very educational and insightful. It is a great platform for everyone to self-reflect, improve and learn new things about themselves and others.

I can see how Persona fits into our existing focus on building student character and would absolutely wish to trial it next term.

An e-learning approach to life skills would be a lot easier than finding teachers with the ability to deliver it.

Persona allows students not only to enhance their attainment in some traditional measures, but also their self-worth and the 'soft skills' which are crucial to wellbeing, further study and employability.
