Always learning

At Pearson, our purpose is simple: to add life to a lifetime of learning. We do this in three ways. We create and curate world-class learning and assessment content. We distribute that content digitally and through physical materials to millions of users worldwide, and we help individuals, employers, and institutions build and verify skills.

In a changing global economy with a societal need for new and different skills, and new technology like generative AI disrupting how we live and learn, we are constantly innovating to meet the evolving needs of our customers.

We believe generative AI can have a positive impact on teaching and learning. That's why AI has been part of how Pearson thinks and operates for many years, and why we are responsibly building secure AI-powered tools that help students learn and help educators teach.

So, whether it’s upskilling in the workplace, making the grade at school and university, or learning a new language, Pearson is proud to help millions of people in nearly 200 countries realise the life they imagine every day.

For us, learning isn't just what we do. It's who we are.
