Pearson & Pearson Institute
As a learning company, with more than 35,000 employees in over 70 countries, Pearson is passionate about making change happen on a global scale. We are committed to creating social impact in everything we do. Through a combination of our quality products and services, external and internal campaigns, sustainability initiatives and social innovation, we support global and local educational causes and issues that help remove barriers to achieving better learning outcomes.
In sub-Saharan Africa alone, Pearson publishes content in over 50 African languages. We provide learning solutions from early childhood learning to professional certification, curriculum-based print materials, e-learning content and tools, as well as teacher training and testing programmes. We are committed to helping teachers to acquire, improve, and master skills that contribute to students success and their own professional development..
In South Africa, Pearson is home to Maskew Miller Longman and Heinemann, two of the best-known names in South African publishing and leaders in the provision of print materials and CAPS approved textbooks. Pearson South Africa is an innovator in providing e-Learning content and teacher training. We provide learning materials, digital technologies - with ongoing support - and learning services for use in schools, TVET colleges, higher education institutions, and home and professional environments.
As part of the company’s organic growth in the direct delivery of learning, Pearson South Africa has acquired the Pearson Institute of Higher Education (formerly known as Midrand Graduate Institute) and CTI Education Group. Today, this group has 12 campuses, over 8 000 students and 35 different nationalities represented across our campuses in South Africa.
Our aim at Pearson Institute and CTI 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.
At Pearson South Africa, we are committed to building successful communities through partnerships across the educational landscape - with ministries of education, industry, students, parents and teachers - to help people make progress in their lives through access to and enjoyment of learning. For we believe that wherever learning flourishes, so do people and economies.
