Welcome. There's a wealth of information about Pearson to view or download via the links on the left, but if you have a specific question, we're always keen to talk. View Media Contacts.

Pearson is the world's leading learning company. If that sounds like a wide-ranging remit, that's because it is. We believe learning can take so many forms: perusing, leafing through a Penguin book, playing Poptropica or navigating some faraway city armed with a Rough Guide.

We started out as a construction firm in 1844. (Read Our History.) We've come a long way since then. Not only have we become a learning company, we've become international (we're active in more than 60 countries) and digital (as a pioneer in the use of technology to help people read and learn).

We've realised that whatever you want to be when you grow up, learning is the best way to achieve it. You could say we're still in construction; it's just now we're helping people build their knowledge and skills.
