Persona Life Skills is the only online student personal development platform with a unique personality insights framework at its heart, helping schools and colleges boost wellbeing and employability for students age 13 to 19.
Free version available. For full access, pricing starts from USD1,800 per year for 100 students.
The scaffolded, age-appropriate curriculum guides young people to develop life skills for social, learning and work situations, that map to Singapore MOE, IB Learner Profile, Cambridge iGCSE, GL PASS and other popular benchmarks.
The programme works equally well in lessons or tutor groups, or via blended or remote online learning. Built-in onboarding, teacher resources and contextual guidance mean any non-specialist teacher can easily get started and facilitate the learning.
Students receive instant feedback on activities, and their input is saved as they go along. They can sign in anytime to review work or complete tasks.
Wrapped in an engaging learning metaphor of exploring an archipelago of islands representing different life challenges, our pedagogy is rooted in behavioural science research. The pedagogy drives the technology, not vice versa.
What makes Persona Life Skills really unique is the ‘Self/Friends’ personality insights framework at its heart, guiding students to adapt to life challenges, build productive relationships, make informed decisions, and achieve positive outcomes.
At Persona we believe in keeping things practical. So our personality insights framework is built around four descriptive, positive and memorable social styles. The framework, algorithm and insights are all rooted in large scale empirical research by behavioural scientists, and were developed with UK government R&D grant funding specifically for young people.
Our wellbeing and employability education platform is continually developing, with input from school inspectors, headteachers, pastoral leads, careers leads, teachers and pupils.
