Persona Education newsletter (Apr-23) - 10 Habits for Developing Social-Emotional Skills


We make the case for a whole school approach to student personal development, with 10 classroom habits empowering every teacher to play a role in improving students' social-emotional skills.

Persona Life Skills is the only online personal development platform where students age 13-19 develop social-emotional life skills for wellbeing and employability, with a unique personality insights framework at its heart.  

Whether you are a Citizenship teacher, PSHE lead, Maths teacher or a Modern Languages tutor, here are 10 classroom habits that will help get you started. All 10 habits are applicable to your lessons. And just imagine the cumulative impact on our students if ALL teachers started to integrate social-emotional learning more overtly into their everyday routine.

Where next on our EdTech journey?

Persona Life Skills already includes over 80 teaching and learning modules, including teacher-facilitated modules focusing on a life challenge – such as self love, preparing for exams, or social media – and self-directed learning modules focusing on skills development. 

Many of the teacher-facilitated modules are designed to help students with 'Social' and 'Learning' context life challenges. Over the next few weeks we will be introducing more 'Work' context modules, aimed to schools and colleges preparing older students for the workplace. 

New modules will include:

  • Work Experience
  • Job Choices
  • Getting Along With Colleagues
  • Giving Presentations
  • Leadership

Thank you for reading! Please follow us on Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn to receive our updates and carefully chosen links to social-emotional, wellbeing and employability resources. 

Best wishes,

Pete Read
CEO & Co-founder
