Maskew Miller Longman and Heinemann

Our vision is to be the leading source of quality and innovative learning materials in all areas in which we are represented.

Maskew Miller Longman has over 100 years of publishing experience in South Africa and is committed to the highest standards of quality. Research and development are cornerstones of the company, which publishes learning and teaching material in all eleven official languages. This includes quality textbooks in compliance with the South African Curriculum, for the Foundation, Intermediate, Senior and Further Education Training (FET) phases. As partners to government in the educational arena, MML develops local materials for local needs. As part of Pearson, it taps into global expertise.

Heinemann publishes a range of school textbooks, eLearning, and professional development materials for all schools in South Africa. Its textbooks and teachers’ guides allow teachers to focus on face-to-face teaching and learner support rather than administration and ensure a successful learning experience, teaching rather than telling and showing how rather than simply instructing. Each Heinemann course yields a strong academic result in order to ensure learners progress successfully to the next level.

Both Maskew Miller Longman and Heinemann offer product training.
