Pearson and AWS Educate Develop First-Ever Business and Technology Education Council Higher National Diploma in Cloud Computing

2021

Rod Bristow, president of Pearson, delivered a keynote address as part of the AWS Public Sector Summit Online 2021 where he offered insight on the latest education trends and the changing workforce. Leveraging the cloud allows Pearson to scale high-traffic periods around midterms and final exams and develop new digital products and next-generation apps that meet the evolving needs of students globally. And while the cloud has helped power Pearson’s internal transformation, they understand the importance of teaching cloud-based skills to help shape the future workforce.

Pearson recently collaborated with AWS Educate to develop the first-ever Business and Technology Education Council (BTEC) Higher National Diploma in Cloud Computing. Students at over 600 universities and colleges around the world will be able to complete the qualifications remotely or in person, which are equivalent to the first two years of a UK honors degree and can lead to higher study or directly to a job. “We’ll continue to invest in cloud computing skills and cloud computing will also hold a key to ever more effective online learning, helping to power and transform the workforce of today and tomorrow,” said Bristow.
