Extend Education
Hi, we’re Orso!

We use in-house experts to create exceptional educational resources for your projects.

Orso Publishing works with publishers, educators and more to create high-quality STEM learning materials for print, digital and hybrid projects.

Unlike many suppliers, our resources are created in-house, and only by trained subject experts.

By doing this, we can fully engage with your product, understand exactly what’s needed, and guarantee a high-quality product that’s on-time and on-budget.

How we work

Our formula for success

The way we operate makes us stand out from the crowd. Our values are at the core of everything we do, and because of them, we are able to guarantee the highest quality results.

Subject experts only

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again because we believe in this very strongly!

We will only ever work on a product if we have the subject expertise to do so – and that includes top-level tasks like project management.

That way, we can guarantee that we fully understand and engage with your project, and that we’re well-placed to communicate on a technical and specific level with all authors, editors, and other team members involved.

The right people

When it comes to hiring staff, we believe strongly in finding the right people, rather than the right work experience, and then providing them with all the specific training necessary to carry out their work successfully.

This way, we can personally guarantee that everyone on the team is fully qualified to do their job, and that they’re motivated and engaged to take your product exactly where you want it.

No compromises on quality

Unlike many suppliers, we do most of our work in-house, so that we can personally guarantee the quality ourselves.

We’ll only work with a small number of known and trusted external suppliers when we’re unable to do the work ourselves.

Small, engaged teams

We want every team member to be fully immersed in the project, and to be able to work with, support, and cover for other team members when necessary.

So, our project managers lead from the front and carry out much of the work themselves, rather than simply assigning jobs and updating spreadsheets.
