Find out more about Independence Educational Publishers

Cambridge-based Independence Educational Publishers produced the first title in their new Issues for the Nineties series in 1990.

Launched by former teacher Craig Donnellan to address a lack of available resources covering social issues for the 14 to 18+ age group, topics in the Issues for the Nineties series gathered together information from a number of sources to provide a comprehensive overview of the contemporary issues affecting society and young people.

Later renamed Issues, the series now contains over 70 titles, covering a variety of subjects for Key Stage 3 and 4 students (Scotland S1 to S6) , providing resources for teachers, students, and librarians.

Issues & Issues Online

Issues books and Issues Online are used primarily by librarians and teachers to help their students gain a better understanding of the world around them and the issues which affect their lives. However, we have found that our titles have a wider reach than the school environment, being used in addition by charity and lobby groups; further and higher education providers; health organisations; counselling and social care providers, and prisons and young offenders’ institutions.
