Essential Resources believes in learning. We help teachers teach and students learn.

Our resources are strongly grounded in what works in the classroom, giving teachers lesson plans, tools and strategies they need to make a difference. They support students’ learning through every stage of their schooling, ensuring students excel and can apply their learning to numerous meaningful contexts.

Engaging and of high interest, they are developed to provide students with the skills necessary to become analytical thinkers, problem solvers and idea generators, and to succeed in a multinational work environment.
