....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 ...

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.
A key guide on behaviour, the number one concern for most early career teachers, providing a range of research informed and road-tested strategies to support the development of positive classroom systems and structures.
How knowing the facts can help your child succeed
A walk through all the most important issues in education, comparing commonly-held beliefs with simple summaries of the evidence, providing you with clear, jargon-free information.
Signposting better choices to more adventurous teaching
Go on! You can do it!
This book follows on from David Gumbrell’s text LIFT!, arguing that when you are feeling more resilient you have the courage and confidence to take more risks. You can also calculate that risk more rationally, thereby making it less risky and more likely to result in success.
