For many people, learning is the route to a job to support their family or the skills to help them progress in their career. For others, it’s simply a passion for discovery. Learning opens up opportunity and helps to make lives better. Helping people along this path of discovery and inspiration, Pearson cultivates a love of learning that enables a lifetime of progress.

Equipping people with the skills they need for employment is a global challenge. It’s important for economic success, and it transforms the lives of families.
Across the world, 290 million young people are out of work. At the same time, almost 40% of employers tell us they can’t fill their vacancies. Every day, we work with learners, teachers and employers to create solutions that help bridge this divide. We know that for most of our learners, education and training are the way to get a job that supports them and their family. Employability is therefore the ultimate purpose of what we do.
Never before has it been so important to put employability and workskills first in a student’s learning experience. And never has the need been more pressing to encourage today’s students to choose qualifications and career paths that align with the demands of our region’s industries. We also need to ensure that those in the workforce are given the opportunity to continually develop their skills, regardless of age, sector or profession.
Pearson works closely with governments, educators and institutions throughout the region to make a prosperous future for our young people a reality. Our mission is to give them the skills, qualifications, tools and resources necessary to enter employment and carve out rewarding careers.
As the world’s learning company, we can help make a difference. But we also know that the challenges are too immense to tackle alone. So we’re fostering a global community of teachers, parents, students, governments, institutions and businesses, who can help us find the answers and deploy the solutions.
Together we aim to achieve our Efficacy Growth & Impact Goals, empowering the lives of 200 million learners by 2025 in critical ways including:
- access to high quality primary, secondary and postsecondary education,

Meeting the global demand for education will make us a more profitable company. Profits which we invest in benefit with improving education for everyone to ensure that the ultimate prize is a better world for us all to live in.
