Learning isn’t a destination, starting and stopping at the classroom door. It’s a never-ending road of discovery, challenge, inspiration, and wonder.
For many people, learning is the route to a job to support their family, or to the skills that will help them progress in their career. For others, it’s simply a passion for discovery.
Whether it's at home, in the classroom or in the workplace, learning is the key to improving our life chances. To this end, Pearson provides a blend of content, curricula, assessment, training and information systems to make learning more engaging and effective.
Technology underpins everything we do, from the latest resources for personalised learning to data analysis tools to measure progress and aid teaching. By putting technology at the heart of learning, we aim to support, motivate and inspire every educator and every learner.
In today's world, education isn’t just about gaining qualifications: it's about helping learners at every stage of the journey discover a love of learning that helps provide opportunities throughout their lives.
Because wherever learning flourishes, so do people.
New independent research by Pearson (@PearsonSchools), has found that reading and writing for pleasure are two of the top three skills that pupils engage with least in schools.
The research asked the views of almost 3,000 primary and English secondary school teachers, and found that almost one in five (17%) believed writing for pleasure was the skill pupils engaged with the least, shortly followed by reading for pleasure (14%). The lack of engagement in the two skills round out the top three issues identified, coming in just behind presentation and public speaking (18%).

Tech and business advances have accelerated as a result of the pandemic. Rather than preparing for the economy of the future in 2030, we have to get ready for it today. The make-up of the workforce is going to continue to evolve over the coming months and years thanks to greater automation, a shift to digital enabled roles, and transformation happening across many parts of the economy. All of this impacts on the demand for skills and education – and so, we need a system that can adapt and be flexible to meet this great reskilling and upskilling challenge.
@pearson has today announced it will support pupils in Years 4 to 11 with two tutoring streams from this September, following a highly successful partnership with the National Tutoring Programme that engaged thousands of pupils in its first year.
