....and we're here to help people in education, health and social work become the best students and professionals they can be.
Having both worked in publishing for many years, we (Di and Julia) founded Critical Publishing in 2012. We met up in the cafe of the British Library, ordered coffee and cake, and hatched a plan. We felt we could produce learning resources for education and social work students and professionals that were fresher and better than what was already around.
We believe we do this by offering a more critical approach (in all the best senses) that helps our readers think and encourages them to analyse, evaluate, question and challenge. But without making it too difficult or daunting.
So our readers achieve better skills, increased awareness and greater success in their chosen professional paths.
We’ve now published over 100 titles in print and digital format, and readers love them. We also have exciting plans for our future offerings ...

A practical guide to the SEND CoP for trainees, teachers and other health and social care professionals working with children and young people who present with special educational needs or disability.
Written for teachers, this concise guide takes an evidence-based approach to professional learning communities and teacher enquiry, with practical advice on how to engage with and evaluate various models.
Helping children rise to the challenge of learning
In the Zone argues that challenge is an essential element of true learning, without which there can be no progress. It brings together supportive materials to encourage teachers to reflect on their present practice, take sensible risks with their teaching, and understand the importance of enjoyment and engagement for both teachers and pupils.
Towards relational pedagogy in higher education
Offers a unique perspective in bringing together the concept of co-creation with relational pedagogy within higher education learning and teaching. Highlights the benefits of classroom-level, relational, dialogic pedagogy and co-creation, with examples of practice and practical guidance.
Taking Ownership of your Teaching
An accessible, carefully researched, quick-read on managing workload and productivity for all early career teachers.
