....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 ...
