21st Century Skills

Success in any sector is dependent upon more than core academic knowledge or technical and occupational skills. Employers need critical thinkers, problem solvers, and leaders to tackle the challenges of today’s workplace.

Employees with successful career paths learn to communicate effectively, engage appropriately with others, and be self-reliant. Effective career readiness and employability strategies are those that develop the whole learner and include personal and social capabilities; critical thinking and problem-solving skills; and academic and occupational knowledge.

Pearson partners with institutions to ensure learners have the 21st century skills they need to be successful in our global economy.
