Persona Life Skills

Online social-emotional learning for student wellbeing and employability

Product Type
Age Range

Persona Life Skills is an online personality insights based approach to social-emotional learning for secondary students age 13-19.

The platform helps to boost student wellbeing and employability by developing life skills such as resilience, problem solving and communication skills. The content complements existing school RSE, PSHE and life skills curricula. Using an engaging learning metaphor of exploring islands representing different life challenges, the pedagogy is rooted in behavioural science research.

It can be used in the classroom, in blended learning or in remote learning.

What makes Persona Life Skills unique is the personality insights framework at its heart, guiding students to adapt to life challenges, build more productive relationships, make more informed decisions, and achieve positive outcomes.

The curriculum covers 22 social-emotional skills that map to Ofsted, Independent Schools Inspectorate, IB Learner Profile, GL PASS, Gatsby, Skills Builder, VIA Character and other benchmarks.

There is built-in teacher onboarding, in-app reference resources and real-time guidance in the teaching modules, so any teacher can easily get started and facilitate the learning. And there’s no marking – students receive instant feedback on activities, and their input is saved as they go along.

Teachers can track student activity in real time, and students self-report learning outcomes at the end of each module, with progress shown in a dashboard, at whole school, cohort, group and individual levels.
