Teachers and Educators in the GCC and wider MENA region now have the opportunity to use books and other teaching aids produced exclusively within the GCC and MENA regions, specifically tailored towards the local region whilst simultaneously offering a state-of-the-artteaching curriculum comparable with the best in the world.
Alpha Publishing, a recently launched, education-focused publishing company, is entirely based in the GCC and MENA regionsand produces multiple publications and education resources in the fields of English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, English Language Teaching (ELT), and English Language for Specific Purposes (ESP). The educational basis of their literature isderived from widely-respected standards including the United States Common Core Standard (CCSS), the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) for the K-12 US Curriculum Schools and the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
Their content is designedfor the GCC andMENA markets, carefully observing local and cultural sensitivities and presenting top-class learning with a level of cultural attention-to-detail which has not been available in the educational publication market until now.
Alpha Publishing Managing Director EyadDarawsheh commented “Our vision is to become the region’s leading publisher in the education domain by producing the highest-quality programs for K – 12 Education and English Language Teaching and Learning materials and courses. We are very proud to be the only educational publisher within the GCC and MENA regions who are solely dedicated to these territories – all our staff are based in the region and we produce materials using our intimate knowledge of the region, meaning that our publications accurately speak to our learners’ challenges, aspirations and reflect the level of local customization required by GCC and MENA-based teachers.”
The age-range of the publications offered by Alpha Publishing covers a wide spectrum, ranging from pre-K classes through to adult and tertiary-level learning packaged with highly interactive digital resources.
Darawsheh added “Given that the educational publication market in our region has traditionally been dominated by global publishers who operate either remotely or via satellite offices, Alpha Publishing aims to offer an alternative which is produced in the region, and for the region. Our content can be delivered on- and offline through our Alpha Learning and Content Management System. Our content featured on the platform is very dynamic, rich and engaging to improve our learners’ outcomes.Through this innovative approach to regional publishing, we hope to enhance the education of our future generations and communities, as well as improving employability within the region.”
