‘It is a great pleasure to work within the Gill community. I am proud of the books we have produced together. While enjoying creative autonomy, I am always supported by the exceptional Gill team of excellent editors, creative designers and innovative marketing and sales personnel. I have always felt part of a mutual educational commitment to provide the best quality textbooks that support the needs of teachers and students.’

Lorraine Lawrance

Co-author of Over the Moon

‘My experience with Gill has been the most rewarding, fun and creative part of my teaching career to date. The team are professional, approachable and highly respectful of the teaching profession and I learned so much from them that I could not have gained in the four walls of the classroom. The Over the Moon project allowed me to share and build my expertise in Literacy; it is something I am very proud of and I would encourage you to take the leap and enjoy the journey!’

With a rich history of educational content development, they provide a supportive environment for authors to create impactful learning experiences.

Gearóid O’Brien

Author of Call to Action

‘Writing Call to Action with Gill Education was a wonderful experience. Working closely with Gill’s reviewers, editors, designers, and the digital team gave me a great insight into the different educational needs that the book needed to address. Seeing my book in print was a marvellous personal accomplishment. I would highly recommend Gill Education to any author looking to bring a new textbook to the market.’
