About Pearson

At Pearson, home of Maskew Miller Longman and Heinemann, we’re here to help people make progress in their lives through learning.

Learning isn’t a destination, starting and stopping at the classroom door. It’s a never-ending road of discovery, challenge, inspiration, and wonder.

For many people, learning is the route to a job to support their family or the skills to help them progress in their career. For others, it’s simply a passion for discovery.

Whether it’s in the classroom, at home, or in the workplace, learning is the key to improving our life chances.

That’s why, at Pearson, we provide trusted CAPS-approved textbooks, digital and supplementary resources, services and support, and professional development courses, to make learning more engaging and effective.

We create content in all 11 official languages and have a footprint in all 9 provinces. Our unique insight and local expertise comes from our long history of working closely with the Department of Education, teachers, learners, researchers, authors and thought leaders.

We have a clear and simple set of values – in everything we do, we inspire to be brave, imaginative, decent and accountable. These values describe what is important to all of us, and guide us to do what is right for the world around us.

Every day all over South Africa, our products and services help learning flourish. Because wherever learning flourishes, so do people.
