Teachit's editorial policy

Teachit’s vision and mission

Our vision is to inspire teaching and develop a love of learning. Our mission is to inspire teachers with ideas and resources they can trust.

Our publishing model

Our audience is predominantly teaching practitioners delivering the English National Curriculum from the EYFS through to KS5. We publish standalone resources, teaching packs (usually consisting of a route-through or set of lesson plans for a topic, text or skill, along with accompanying resources) and multimedia content. We publish new content every month and are always open to creative collaborations with partners in the education field. Our content is exam-board agnostic and, where possible, focused on Assessment Objectives as opposed to board-specific criteria. While some resources have been created for a particular specification, our range of resources caters to as wide an audience as possible and includes a variety of teaching styles and formats. 

Editorial practice

Our content team is made up of former teachers who use their experience to decide what to publish and when. The majority of our resources are shared with us by practising teachers (contributors) who have created and used them in their own classrooms. Others have been commissioned or written by our content team, who use their market knowledge and teaching expertise to consider what teachers will be looking for next. 

When considering resources for publication, the content team looks at:

  • Intent. Who is the resource for? What is the learning objective? What is the outcome?
  • Context. Does the resource work in a variety of different classroom contexts?
  • Format. What format should the resource take to make it most useful?
  • Accuracy. Are answers correct? Do puzzles/games work? Are references (to texts, for example) correct? 
  • Copyright. Do text extracts or images infringe copyright regulations? Do we need to apply for copyright permissions or can we replace elements with copyright-free content without changing the resource? 
  • Originality. Has the resource been published elsewhere? (We only publish original content.)

Our aim is to honour the original resource as much as possible, making changes only where necessary to ensure it functions effectively for a wide audience.
