Persona Education newsletter Feb-23 - The school library as a student wellbeing hub


Read how the school librarian at The English College in Prague trialled and then expanded wellbeing resources for Year 9 and 10, using the Persona Life Skills programme.

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.  

The school or college library's role in improving student wellbeing has never been more urgently needed. As well as developing a tailored library and study skills curriculum, the librarian at The English College in Prague trialled Persona Life Skills as an online wellbeing education programme for 50 students in Year 9, and following positive feedback from students and teachers this has now been expanded to include all Year 9 and Year 10 students.

Where next on our EdTech journey?

As exam season approaches for many schools, colleges and students in the UK and around the world, stress levels can rise. Young people benefit from structure, thinking strategies and guidance to help them navigate this important and challenging phase of their education and life journey.

In Persona Life Skills, several teacher-facilitated 'life challenge' modules help students and teachers recognise and deal with potential issues together:

  • Preparing for Exams
  • Managing Homework
  • Getting Along With Teachers

And there are many self-directed learning 'life skill' modules in which students develop their own social-emotional skillsets to help them cope, including:

  • Stress Management
  • Time Management
  • Perseverance

All this, of course, approached through the lens of our unique personality insights framework, developed specially for young people and rooted in robust behavioural science.

If you already have a Persona Life Skills teacher account, click here to see all the self- directed learning modules (have your username and password ready). Or register a free account here, then sign in and head to the My Guided Tours screen. Teacher-facilitated modules can be found in the Islands screen.

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,
