Pearson at a glance

We are the world's leading learning company, with 40,000 employees in more than 80 countries working to help people of all ages make measurable progress in their lives through learning.

We provide learning materials, places of learning, technologies, assessments and services to teachers, professionals and students in order to help people everywhere aim higher and fulfil their true potential.

We are a very different company from the one Wheetman Pearson created 150 years ago, but our founder’s imagination in harnessing new technologies, his bravery of vision, and decency to the people and cultures he worked with are values that still underpin everything we do more than 150 years later.
