about us
Learning is the most powerful force for change in the world. More than 20,000 Pearson employees deliver our products and services in nearly 200 countries, all working towards a common purpose - to help everyone achieve their potential through learning. We do that by providing high quality, digital content and learning experiences, as well as assessments and qualifications that help people build their skills and grow with the world around them.

We serve South Africa's learners, teachers, and employers; we work at every point of the learning journey, from pre-school to the workplace. And because we know that for most of our learners, education and training are a means to an end - a job that supports them and their family - employability is the ultimate purpose of what we do.

Our dedication to creating positive social impact shapes everything we do, from our products and strategies to the way we engage with our learners, partners, and communities around the country.

For Pearson, providing great products and services is just the beginning. It's important for us to know that they are working. Everything we do is driven by its measurable impact on learning outcomes. We call this efficacy.

In 2013, we announced our commitment to report publicly on our progress and make the results transparent. We were the first education company to make this commitment.

By focusing on the efficacy of our products and services, we can see exactly how effective they are at producing successful outcomes for learners. This involves continually measuring, assessing, and improving everything we do and putting the learner at the heart of our learning solutions.

We work with educators and learners to continually improve our products and services, ensuring they have the most positive impact on learning. In this way, we're able to deliver better education to more people - whatever, whenever, wherever, and however they choose.

Every day all over South Africa, our products and services help learning flourish. Because wherever learning flourishes, so do people.
