Join our Director of Education Jo Malone, and Chief Product Officer Dr Leila Khouja Walker, for a 30 min Persona Life Skills online learning platform demo webinar, followed by Q&A, on 8th June 2022.

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.  

Planning and budgeting for the next academic year is well under way for many schools and colleges in the UK and around the world. Social-Emotional Learning (SEL), RSE, PSHE and soft skills are top of the agenda as schools address the wellbeing and employability gaps that threaten their students’ futures. Find out how Persona Life Skills can help, while empowering teachers and helping you hit Ofsted, ISI, IB and other personal development benchmarks. A free account includes personality insights, 22 self-directed learning modules and six teacher facilitated modules.

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 in the teenage years to start developing these important life skills.

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
