At Pearson our mission is to help all people make progress in their lives through learning. Why – because learning is a passport to improved rates of employability, higher living standards, social mobility and increased levels of general wellbeing within society for all people, including people with disabilities.
As an employer, Pearson values having a workforce that is fully representative of society and actively encourages and supports people with disabilities to join us and help us effectively meet the needs of all learners.Our approach towards accessibility is shaped both by our company values and purpose as well as a commitment to inclusion. We believe that every person should enjoy equitable access to learning, regardless of disability.
Becoming a signatory to the Valuable 500 helps reinforce our efforts and we commit to:
- Set out and publicly disclose a policy framework through which Pearson businesses will apply our approach to product accessibility.
- Build, develop and share a market leading approach to mentoring people with disabilities.
