Equipping people with the skills they need for employment is a global challenge. It’s vital for economic success, and it transforms the lives of families. That’s why at Pearson, the world’s learning company, our mission is to help people make progress in their lives through learning. We serve learners, teachers, and employers worldwide; we work at every point of the learning journey, from preschool to the workplace. And because we know that for most of our learners, education and training are a means to an end—a job that supports them and their family—employability is the ultimate purpose of what we do. Through BoostMe360, Pearson has created a platform to connect job seekers with a network of employers. By enabling people to make their talent visible to the market we are unlocking potential in people and creating opportunity for the benefit of employers, job seekers and society as a whole.
BoostMe360 is a web based platform that helps job seekers put their best foot forward while enabling businesses to find the right staff for short-term jobs. Designed by Pearson, BoostMe360 lets candidates create an enriched personalised profile and upskill themselves through free learning modules. Job seekers can indicate when they are available to work on their personal calendar. Employers save time and money by finding someone who lives close to their business, is available and has the qualities they are looking for.
