Persona Education Newsletter, Jan-22
Persona Life Skills perfectly complements the UK's PSHE Association framework and the statutory Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) framework. In the platform, both frameworks are approached through the lenses of self-awareness, personal development and skills.
Persona Life Skills is the online learning 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 Persona Life Skills curriculum supports students in making healthy choices, with the help of deeper self-awareness, learning how to adapt, and the importance of persevering. Students learn how to build more positive and productive relationships in different contexts, including school, work and social life. Teachers can view a Life Skills Framework page to see which modules map against different areas of the PSHE Association and Relationships & Sex Education frameworks.
