Persona Education Newsletter May-22

15-Jun-22

India’s National Education Policy acknowledges that for continued economic growth, both what children are taught and how they are taught must change. Persona Life Skills is one programme helping Indian schools and colleges to meet this imperative.

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

The Indian government wants to position itself as a skills beacon in the future, by up-skilling the labour force and focusing on lifelong learning, and skills and attitudes such as growth mindset, learning to learn, resilience, communication and critical thinking. In Persona Life Skills, students develop 22 social-emotional skills that map to the NEP, ICSE, CBSE, iGCSE and the IB Learner Profile.

Where next on our EdTech journey?

In the post COVID-19 world, companies need emotionally intelligent workers with a range of soft skills, says the European Labour Authority. For example it is important to develop a sense of ‘digital etiquette’: Do your colleagues like lengthy, detailed emails, or do they prefer to talk on the phone? How often do they want to be updated during a task?

This ability to adapt your communication style to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes is something we focus on a lot in Persona Life Skills. We believe it is vitally important to start developing these important life skills in the teenage years.

We are constantly developing our teaching and learning content, and focusing increasingly on skills for the workplace. Some upcoming modules include:

  • Leadership
  • Giving Presentations
  • Getting Along With Colleagues
