The company:

We want to create the market´s best learning materials. We´ve all been students. Our textbook writers are teachers and most of our employees are former teachers. So we know what an important job you´re doing. What we do is provide the tools. We start from what we already know works in the classroom and bring it into the future together with new technology. Since digital learning can never recreate the interaction in the physical classroom, we advocate the mix of working both analogue and digital, what we call blended learning.
Sanoma Utbildning started in 1993. Since then, we have worked continuously to produce both physical and digital learning materials in everything from mathematics, language and social studies to history, law and philosophy. We turn to preschool, all the way up to university, college and sfi.
Sanoma Utbildning is part of Sanoma Learning, the leading European learning company, serving over 20 million students in eleven countries. Our learning products and services enable teachers to develop the talents of every child to reach their potential. We offer printed and digital learning materials as well as digital learning and teaching platforms for primary, secondary and vocational education.
