Company History

Education Support Programmes commenced operations in 1995. Since that time the company has become an industry leader in providing educational programs for students.

Following its success and strong reputation gained in preparing students for the Queensland Core Skills Test, Education Support Programmes has gone on to establish itself as a premier Australian provider of quality NAPLAN preparation workbooks.

With the changes to online literacy and numeracy testing, Education Support Programmes has now turned its focus on assisting students in this important area. Our online preparation resources will go beyond just familiarising students with online testing to providing a teaching tool for students to improve on possible areas of weakness with additional practice and solutions. We feel confident students and teachers are going to benefit from these excellent resources.
