Teachit is a tried and trusted education resource used by thousands of teachers nationwide.

Specialising in English, Drama and Media Studies from primary to post-16, the online Teachit library offers 15,551 pages of classroom materials, schemes of work, lesson plans and teaching tools, all created by working teachers and - thanks to our team of Teachit contributors - constantly growing.

A phenomenal success since its launch in 1999, Teachit now represents a huge online community of teachers sharing resources to help focus their efforts in planning lessons.

Teachit takes a unique approach to educational publishing. Founded by English teacher Siobhain Archer in 1999 as a spare-time addition to her teaching workload, the online library of learning resources rapidly gathered its own momentum as her colleagues discovered the value of sharing their teaching materials. A compelling example of the true utility of the internet, Teachit grew unstoppably in response to its users' needs.

Teachit's subscription services, offering editable content and online access for ICT lessons, enable Teachit to function as a small, no-frills business, but more importantly, to share a proportion of revenues with its contributor network of teachers in the classroom.

Teachit.works brings ICT to life in English teaching. Using familiar technology (requiring no additional training or software) and linking seamlessly with existing Teachit materials, teachers can guide pupils through engaging and effective tasks online. With Teachit.works, ICT becomes an integral and useful part of every scheme of work

Teachit shares a proportion of its subscription revenues with the teachers who contribute materials. The company works closely with the National Association for Teachers of English (NATE), is part of the National Grid for Learning, and is a member of the British Educational Suppliers Association (BESA).

In April 2011 Teachit became part of the AQA family with the aim of supporting all teachers and all learners to realise their potential. Teachit remains editorially independent and is committed to publishing high quality resources which reflect what teachers are doing in the classroom, regardless of their awarding body.
