At Pearson, we have a once in a generation opportunity to transform teaching & learning to prepare people for a changing economy. The educational ecosystem is changing at a ferocious pace. Our company is changing rapidly. We no longer have the luxury of waiting to see how the market will change; we need to operate differently. Learners today are preparing to enter a world of work in which the skills required for employment are rapidly changing. Lifelong learning & ongoing re-skilling will become a reality for most.

In addition - Technology has changed our expectations of how we live, work, communicate. Learners expect education to be engaging and inspiring. They expect digital learning to be as responsive, secure, fast and effective as the other apps in their pocket - Facebook, iTunes. They expect to have access to learning anytime, anyplace, any device and get help when they need it - Consumer Grade without being a target of cyber attacks.
