English and Spanish curriculum publishing is at the core of Macmillan Education with a vigorous publishing programme catering to the needs of primary and secondary schools across the whole curriculum. The publishing range encompasses science, social science, geography, maths and literacy skills. The end product may take the form of an atlas, textbook or digital resource and recognises the changing needs of teachers worldwide.
Whichever country or curriculum we are publishing for, there are guarantees with Macmillan Education materials. Our unrivalled standing is built upon a close understanding of the specific requirements of each country in which we operate. We work with local authorities, Ministries of Education, teachers and teacher trainers to ensure our experienced authors match curriculum requirements.
We support our teachers with online and face-to-face resources, websites, downloadable materials, tests and teacher-training. We understand that teachers make a commitment when they choose our materials, and we are committing to helping and supporting them as they begin to use them. Online teaching clubs and magazines allow us to give them individual attention. It’s almost like we’re there with the teacher in the classroom.

Our publishing is not confined to traditional print but comes in the forms of maps, wall charts and increasingly the digital resources as African ministries invest in the educational future online.
