Character-building and life skills

We have frameworks to prepare students for life after school.

Vivo helps students develop life’s essential skills. Character-building, soft skills, emotional intelligence, employability, transferable skills, information and computer literacy can all be honed with Vivo.

Promote the excellence of your school

Share your expertise and knowledge with the wider community.

The Vivo Network is a channel to showcase all the amazing things going on at your school and be an inspiration for others. If your values and ethos prove successful, set frameworks for other schools to follow.

Digital record of achievement

To meet the demands of the modern world, students need a way to demonstrate their achievements.

The Vivo Profile is a digital record of a student’s character, skills, inspirations and aspirations. Students can use it to showcase the excellence of their whole person: the personal statement of the future.

Student engagement

Inspire students to reach their potential in school, at home and in life.

We provide a platform that is personal, social, gamified, holistic and self-reflective. Vivo fosters the motivation and inspiration necessary for deep learning, as well as laying the foundations for lifelong learning.

Links to charities and SMSC

We help students learn about the world and see the bigger picture.

We connect schools to charities all over the world, giving students opportunities to get involved. Vivo provides a context for students to make decisions about their own lives. It helps them figure out their responsibilities to other people, to society, to the environment and to the local community.

The Vivo Library

The Vivo Library is a connected learning ecosystem that extends beyond mainstream learning. Students can craft their own learning pathways at their own pace, based on their individual interests and learning styles.

Content is published in bite-size chunks (Vivos) or packaged within a micro-course structure as Vivo Decks. You can align the content surfaced to your students with certified frameworks (Character-building, Emotional Intelligence, SMSC, 21st Century Skills, DofE etc.)

Students can discover opportunities relevant to them, such as charity work, volunteering, arts events, sports clubs and work experience. With added focus on character-building, students can develop the personal and life skills needed to become confident, well-rounded and conscientious individuals.


As students use Vivo, they build up a digital record of their skills, knowledge, character and well-being.

Fully customisable with digital badges, skills, character attributes, work experience, endorsements, the Vivo profile is ready-at-hand to share with the world.

Engagement and rewards

A wide range of gamification technology (digital badges, points, leaderboards and challenges) is available to boost student engagement. There are a wide range of prizes available too, providing initiatives with intrinsic and extrinsic value. Challenges can be set to motivate individuals and groups, such as “Most Improved” and “Team Target”.

Vivo fosters positive attitudes to learning, instilling a sense of fun and pride in what students are achieving at school.

The Recommendation Engine

Vivo’s Recommendation Engine guides students on personal learning journeys. By mapping and tracking student activity and encouraging self-reflection, the platform learns about an individual’s interests, passions and aspirations. It then surfaces content and suggests opportunities to support this. For instance, it recommends suitable careers guidance and connects students to local businesses offering relevant work experience. Vivo complements and facilitates blended learning, flipped learning and student-led learning.

The Vivo Network

The Vivo Network can amplify and communicate all the amazing things going on at your school. Reinforce links with prep schools in your area. Demonstrate the excellence of your school to the community, show how your values and ethos are driving successes. Create your own Vivo Decks to share your expertise with other schools.

There are so many amazing opportunities out there for young people to explore. The Vivo Library gathers them all in one place. If it’s a local youth project, a charity, an arts club or a local business with work experience, Vivo helps students take advantage of the wealth of opportunities available. Students can engage with charities and other non-profit organisations to see what is being done to make the world a better place and get involved.

Schools can build an online community around their core values, so that everyone is working towards the same goals and ethos. It’s fun, inclusive and a great source of inspiration for students, who can see all the amazing things going on at school. Students know that their actions have the potential to inspire other students. The Vivo Network is a safe space to collaborate and share ideas, and to promote and recognise each other’s achievements.

An excellent communication tool, the Vivo Network can engage parents in a student’s development. A great way to keep informed on attendance, progress and achievement, but also to offer support, guidance and inspiration.


Vivo’s powerful analytics provide a wealth of data for tracking engagement and achievement. This is great for evidencing outcomes and generating reports for Ofsted and SLT.

It also gives schools the ability to follow student trends and activity. Find out what inspires your students: their interests, goals and aspirations.
