Where next on our EdTech journey?

We've been conducting large scale pilots and trials with schools, colleges and their students in the UK, India and Jordan over the past few months. The feedback from students has been so encouraging – and at times moving:

"The course taught me how to balance all the aspects of my life positively."

"It helps me gain confidence, and face life challenges."
"I learnt how to and how not to react in different situations."

"I built confidence both in spoken skills and group collaboration and cooperation. I learn a lot."

"It helped me a lot to navigate through the sea of my life."

This totally confirms that what we are doing at Persona Education is worthwhile and makes a real difference in people's lives.

Our state-of-the-art Persona Insights framework lies at the heart of it all. Crucially we don't put young people in 'boxes' or label them with a single personality 'type'. Instead the framework takes account of different aspects of personalities emerging over time and in different contexts: Social, Learning and Work.

We continue to improve the algorithm and the output, with the aim of improving millions young people's lives and future prospects.

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
