Experiential Learning

Many of the skills that learners need to transition to careers are developed outside the classroom. From work-study programs to internships to on-the-job training, successful employees are always learning. Pearson is partnering with institutions to assess and recognize the valuable knowledge, skills, and competencies gained through experiential learning.

Credit for Prior Learning (CPL)

Institutions can accelerate completion of degrees and credentials by assessing experiential and other extra-institutional learning. Granting college credit, certification, or advanced standing toward further education or training for these experiences can help ensure graduates are truly career ready.

Digital Badges

As they’re entering the job market, recent graduates often have difficulty describing their competencies and telling their stories to employers. And employers struggle to identify candidates whose qualifications they can trust.

Pearson is helping institutions create badging ecosystems that increase transparency and establish effective communication between job-seeking graduates and prospective employers.
