Macmillan Education is a global brand with a reputation for publishing the highest quality text books and teaching materials, many of which have been written by leading experts in English Language Teaching and curriculum development. However what really sets us apart is the way we work at a local level. By operating in over 120 countries worldwide, we can get close to the students, teachers, institutions and educational authorities that use our products and materials and listen to what they need. That's how we've been able to build long lasting relationships and help improve the learning outcomes for millions of students around the world.
Today we publish English Language Teaching and school curriculum materials in print, digital and on-line formats to suit the needs of classrooms around the world, and we support teachers by offering the training they need to deliver the best experience to their students.
We are there for teachers and learners throughout the learning journey. We help children learn their first words of English while getting adults on the learning ladder, leading high-school students to exam success and supporting business professionals in order for them to achieve the best in their careers.
Our passion for learning and commitment to education is second to none. It is clear in all we do. It is why Macmillan Education remains the most trusted partner to deliver innovative solutions that will drive student performance and help educators and institutions to deliver excellent results.
Reflecting our heritage
Macmillan has come a long way since Daniel and Alexander Macmillan, two brothers from the Scottish Isle of Arran, began publishing books in 1843. They made their mark on the literary world by publishing world-famous authors such as Carroll, Hardy, Kipling and Tennyson. They were driven by learning and discovery – the same things that drive us today.
Our parent company: a family business
The Macmillan Science and Education group is a division of The Holtzbrinck Publishing Group. Based in Germany, Holtzbrinck is one of the leading media companies in the world, and publishes in print and digital media in over 138 countries.
Macmillan Education Argentina
Macmillan Education Argentina is one of four regional companies established by Macmillan Education in Latin America - our sister companies are in México, Brazil and Peru.
We are responsible for importing as well as producing English Language Teaching materials for teachers and students in the region. In order to offer the best possible service we have representatives based in Buenos Aires, Rosario, Córdoba and other cities in Argentina, as well as in Uruguay and Paraguay. We also work with a regional network of distributors and bookshops so that all our materials are available to students and teachers wherever they are.
Macmillan Education develops educational tools for communities around the world. In over 120 countries, it creates technology and resources to make English, the language of education and business, more accessible. From teacher training to online learning, Macmillan Education offers the most effective and appropriate tools for education today.
Global publishing, local presence
Whether it’s Georgia, Argentina or Poland, Macmillan Education knows the importance of local knowledge and responding to differing teaching needs. It works with local experts to bring the right digital and print materials to pre-primary through to adult education in each community. Every resource is created with the local cultural norms and needs in mind.
For teachers, by teachers
Because many Macmillan people used to be teachers, they know what it’s like to be in the classroom. So it isn’t just about creating new tools and publications. It’s about supporting teachers to make the most of them, with everything from product training to skills seminars. By creating what teachers say they need, and drawing on their own experience, Macmillan Education is making teaching more effective.
Digital and print for flexible learning
Macmillan Education creates content in all sorts of digital formats – like smart phone apps and remote courses. That means students can study at their own pace and learn independently, while still getting their teacher’s support in class. By combining print, online and digital resources, Macmillan Education is streamlining learning, and making it flexible for students and teachers worldwide.
At Macmillan Education we like to create an environment where our people can 'achieve great things'. That doesn’t just mean interesting things. It means important, life-changing things. Like changing the way students learn and teachers teach.
We strive to transform learning. We adapt to the changing needs of science and education. We make the most of our resources and lead rather than react.
We invest in our people to give them the encouragement and development they need to achieve great things and, in return, expect them to uphold the values we all hold dear.
