Social-Emotional Learning can be delivered in many different ways. Integrating it into whole school culture over time will achieve the best, long-lasting positive impact.

Persona Life Skills is the only personal development platform with personality insights at its heart, where students age 13-19 develop social-emotional skills supporting wellbeing, academic and employability outcomes. 

Integrating Social-Emotional Learning into the whole school culture will achieve the best, long-lasting positive impact for students, teachers and leadership. This could involve any or all of dedicated, blended, remote, integrated, independent, tutoring, or coaching approaches. Pete Read and Dr Leila Khouja Walker, creators of the online Social-Emotional Learning platform Persona Life Skills, offer advice for schools and colleges on different ways this critical element of student Personal Development can be delivered.

Do you know an angel investor?

97% of teachers using Persona Life Skills say it improves their students' employability, and 94% say it boosts wellbeing.

We are now raising a pre-seed investment round – EIS Assured so it's tax efficient – to help make Persona Life Skills even better for students, teachers and schools.

The funding will be used for:

  • Making Persona Life Skills more engaging and interactive
  • Adding short video content to make it more accessible
  • Increasing school support to boost training and onboarding

We already have investors backing us but there is still some equity up for grabs. So if you know someone who is interested in supporting a social impact start-up with great market traction, led by an experienced team with a proven track record, please ask them to get in touch.

Thank you for reading! You can also find previous issues of this newsletter here.
