We support high-quality education across the world, embodying the University of Cambridge’s mission to ‘contribute to society through the pursuit of education, learning and research at the highest international levels of excellence’.

Our expertise in creating textbooks and digital resources, supported by the latest learning research, helps students everywhere to develop their knowledge and achieve their potential.

We will work closely with you to identify the most suitable publishing approach for your needs. We believe that a one-size-fits-all solution is unlikely to be successful – instead, we take into account your local context and short- and long-term objectives to deliver tailored learning resources.

We believe high-quality textbooks must:

  • Provide structure and sequence to the scope of the curriculum
  • Be written at an appropriate language level for learners
  • Provide worked examples and activities for practice and production
  • Apply the best and most appropriate research to improve learning
  • Encourage easy access by teachers and students
A. Custom publishing

Many of our custom publishing projects start with a needs analysis and detailed market research to understand your specific objectives and challenges. We develop resources in partnership with you, considering your local context, international education best practice and the latest educational research.

Our subject experts create high-quality content at a level that is right for your learners. Our resources include textbooks, teacher’s guides (which support teachers in the classroom) and workbooks (which support students outside the classroom).

By creating learning and teaching materials that contain recognisable locations and references, local currency and common situations, we help create an environment which feels familiar to the learner.

We have long-standing relationships with some of the best authors from around the world. This means that we are able to publish custom resources of the highest standard at speed. We also publish in multiple languages using the approach of language-supported pedagogy.

We manage the entire publishing process, including sourcing and briefing authors, editorial, design, quality control, and final production, and are at hand at all times to ensure you get the results you want.

B. Contextualised publishing

Education is better when the learner identifies with their learning environment. That’s why we adapt and customise existing print and digital Cambridge resources to reflect the culture, history and values of your country.

By creating learning and teaching materials that contain recognisable locations and references, local currency and common situations, we help create an environment which feels familiar to the learner.

Contextualised publishing projects start with careful research to identify the most suitable resources to customise. Our local experts then work in partnership with you to agree on the appropriate level of adaptation and ensure the content is tailored to your learners for every step of their journey.

Cambridge publishing is underpinned by the principles from Brighter Thinking Better Learning. Visit International Education for more details on resources available for contextualisation.

C. Publishing project management
