Persona Education in 2022 – A year in review

Persona Education year in review 2022

1-Jan-23

By Pete Read, CEO & Founder

Amid the economic, political and military turmoil of 2022, schools, colleges and their students in most regions of the world continued to get used to a new normal of hybrid and blended learning.

Supporting this transition with our online life skills learning platform, at Persona Education we continued towards our vision of a world with more cooperation and less conflict, working single-mindedly on our important mission to boost the wellbeing, employability 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 2022: Releasing v3.0 of our Persona Life Skills platform featuring student self-registration, a new intuitive homepage learning journey and upgraded Persona Profile section; introducing a 90 Day Trial of selected paid subscription content and features to help schools and colleges assess the platform; partnering with Pearson and Credly on a social-emotional skills digital badging pilot; making Persona Life Skills available via five new channel partners; adding 22 new 'Challenge' level My Guided Tour self-directed learning modules as well as Interview Ready and First Job 'Work' context teacher-facilitated Island modules; signing up over 200 schools and colleges in 18 new countries; being invited to join the SuperCharger Edtech Accelerator programme; shortlisted for not one but two edtech competition finals; hosting nine thought leadership and demo webinars throughout the year, being interviewed by NetSupport Radio at BETT... and so much more.
