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 are the global experts in learning. See the 5 types of products & services that we deliver to tens of millions of learners annually.
The global learning market is vast - at around $7 trillion today, growing to over $10 trillion by 2030. This all adds up to huge momentum in our industry, and a great opportunity for Pearson to innovate and scale to meet the growing and changing demands of consumers globally. The most interesting thing about that extraordinary $7 trillion learning market? It is currently only 3% digital! And that’s a huge opportunity for us to grow our business. See how we're going to do that.
