Persona Education in 2021 – A year in review
By Pete Read, CEO & Founder
2021 certainly was a challenging year in many ways, not least for the health and wellbeing of people young and old, all around the globe.
Despite all the hurdles, at Persona Education we continued full speed ahead on our mission to boost the wellbeing and success of young people globally. As a result we have a huge amount to celebrate and be thankful for as we look back at 2021: Releasing v2.0 of our Persona Life Skills app with its state-of-the-art personality insights and unique student Adaptability measure, both funded by Innovate UK; adding many new My Guided Tour life skills learning modules and Island life challenge modules; making a free version available; signing up over 150 new schools in over 20 countries; becoming a Skills Builder level 1 Impact Partner; being shortlisted for not one but two edtech competition finals; press coverage in The Times and Tech Crunch; recognition for my co-founder Leila as an Edtech Female Founder; publishing articles in top educational media including FE News, Teach Middle East and Wellbeing in International Schools... and so much more.
