Pearson SA joins partner list for HR Indaba 

Pearson helps people make progress in their lives through access to better learning.

As a leading learning company, with more than 35,000 employees in over 70 countries, Pearson is passionate about making change happen on a global scale. They are committed to creating social impact in everything they do. Through a combination of quality products and services, external and internal campaigns, sustainability initiatives and social innovation, they support local educational causes and issues that help remove barriers to achieving better learning outcomes for all individuals, including working professionals.

Pearson was founded in 1844 by Samuel Pearson in Yorkshire, England. Their unique insight and world-class expertise come from its long history of working closely with teachers, learners, researchers, authors, thought leaders and professionals. In 2010, Pearson South Africa was created from a group of companies that provides extensive local educational knowledge combined with the global resources of the world’s learning company. 

As part of the company’s organic growth in the direct delivery of learning, Pearson South Africa then acquired the Pearson Institute of Higher Education (formerly known as Midrand Graduate Institute) and CTI Education Group. Today, this group has 12 campuses across South Africa. The aim of the Pearson Institute is to transform lives through learning and to produce employable graduates who are prepared for all aspects of the modern workplace. To this end, students benefit from a diversity of academic ideas and a range of career-focused qualifications and programmes.

The company helps people make progress in their lives through access to better learning. Learning changes everything. It helps people gain the skills to find a job or progress in their career, and it helps build successful communities and thriving economies. By helping them along their journey of discovery and inspiration, Pearson aims to cultivate a lifelong love of learning that enables them to enjoy a robust and fulfilling life, whether that’s through employment or simply the ongoing joy of learning, because wherever learning flourishes, so do people.

Pearson puts the learner at the very heart of everything it does. In this way, the company is able to deliver better education to more people, hatever, whenever, wherever and however they choose.

As a partner, Pearson SA will have an exhibition stand at the HR Indaba, which will be the largest of its kind in South Africa. It will give HR professionals an opportunity to learn everything they need to know about the latest HR technology, HR strategy, company culture, labour laws, recruitment, employee engagement and HR leadership. It will also bring together thousands of colleagues, suppliers, platforms, universities, specialists, recruitment agencies, CHROs and thought leaders.
