Our values

We live, breathe and celebrate our values - they drive what we believe in, how we behave and guide us in creating a culture of success.

  • Act with integrity

    Integrity is engrained in the way we work, and everything we do is consistent with our purpose and values. We build clarity around how we will create success - the Kaplan Way.
  • Empower and support

    We make sure everyone has the space and tools they need to work together and continuously improve how and what we deliver to our customers - directly or indirectly.

    This is a place where people can become inspirational educators, grow into experts in our specialist fields and build leadership careers. Those who drive Kaplan’s success, find their success at Kaplan.

    Learning is in our DNA. Investing in knowledge of our ever changing customers, our market and our individual fields creates success for our learners - and for ourselves.
  • Drive results together

    Focusing on what matters most, we collaborate and partner with colleagues, setting targets and measuring progress to turn ambition into outcomes, which we all celebrate.

Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion

We are working hard to create an inclusive environment, where differences are supported and celebrated, enabling employees to achieve their potential and play their part in the business's success. We believe that this is the key to a thriving, happy workplace, and a fair work culture.

Global EDI vision

Kaplan is a global organisation whose mission is rooted in providing equal access to education and opportunities for advancement to people of all backgrounds.

We believe diversity, equity and inclusion - of culture, experiences, perspectives - and opportunity in an ever-changing world.

As an educator, partner and employer, Kaplan is committed to promoting an equitable world in which diverse talent can develop, advance and thrive.

We recognise that, as an employer, we are not as diverse as we want and need to be. Although we have gender equality in our senior and highly paid roles, when we look at other characteristics we can see we’ve still got work to do. We’ve identified our biggest EDI challenges, set clear goals and targets to overcome them, and shared these openly with our employees.

And as an educator, we’re committed to making a difference to every learner.
