Demand for online learning boosts Pearson's Q1 trading

Mon, 26th Apr 2021 07:09

LONDON, April 26 (Reuters) - Global education group Pearson
said strong demand for online learning courses had
helped the group to post a 5% rise in underlying revenue growth
in the first three months of the year.

The British company, repositioning itself as a
consumer-facing group offering training and skills for life
beyond its core schools and colleges remit, said it continued to
expect to deliver revenue and profit growth in 2021.
