Publishing Houses & Educational Media
Ernst Klett Verlag, Österreichischer Bundesverlag (Austria), and Klett und Balmer (Switzerland) support teachers in their everyday work and provide them with teaching and learning materials for use both in the classroom and at home.
We offer nearly all subjects and combinations thereof for every year of these countries’ general-education schools, including in both printed and digital formats. We also cover the special characteristics relevant to each region and specific type of school, along with the education programmes and skill matrices required by each nation. With media and services for planning and organising lessons, tools for testing and diagnostics, audiovisual products, and digital exercise components, our German-language publishing houses for classroom media provide everything teachers need. Free regional events that offer teacher training and ongoing education further complement our portfolio.
Laying a foundation for successful teaching.
Our publishing houses coordinate and bundle the latest insights from the realms of research and practice. Teachers, editors, university professors, and media experts bring their expertise to bear to ensure the best possible quality in terms of design, didactics, and media suitability. In cooperation with these professionals, Klett’s publishing houses set an ideal stage for successful teaching.
The Klett Group concentrates in particular on providing area-specific support to teachers, childcare workers, and the administrators of schools and day-care centres. The specialised publishing houses and service companies within the group offer assistance in classrooms and other settings, from schools’ organisational efforts to the didactic methods they employ.
We take pressure off those who make the education system work and bolster the efforts they make every day to ensure that young people can succeed on their own particular paths to learning.
Through its periodical publications, Friedrich Verlag has spent decades furthering the evolution of schools and didactic methodologies. In Austria, the publishing house JUNGÖSTERREICH accompanies children during their years at day-care centres and schools. Raabe Verlag, meanwhile, sets the standard in terms of its importance for teachers: The qualified materials it provides in practical loose-leaf folders cover everything from lesson preparation and follow-up, assessment testing, and brainstorming to information and specific solution approaches (including software for lesson planning). Raabe also offers digital applications for the classroom and the overall administration of schools. AAP Lehrerwelt (Auer, AOL, and Persen) is specialised in copy templates and brochures that enable teachers to devise exciting and inspiring classroom activities for nearly every subject and school format. Finally, the online portals lehrerbuero.de, lehrerwelt.de and meinunterricht.de provide access to an abundance of technical information for digital use.
From Poland to Greece, from the Netherlands to Spain: Over the past two decades, the Klett Group has established or acquired independent publishing houses engaged in national education in 12 European countries. Along with local experts in schools, the classroom environment, and related research, we follow each country’s regulations in developing teaching and learning materials in printed and digital formats. Our customers can access locally developed offerings that have been tailored to meet their exact requirements and provide key support in both the classroom and other settings.
The manner in which our employees share their ideas across national borders plays a decisive role in our ongoing effort to improve. In all the places we operate in Europe, the publishing houses of the Klett Group help ensure successful teaching!
While English is the language of globalisation, the number of those learning French, Spanish, Russian, and Chinese is growing all around the world. German is also seeing a particularly dynamic increase in interest in the course of the current global refugee movements and migration within Europe.
With their teaching and learning materials, the companies within the Klett Group assist all those who are acquiring new language skills, passing them on to others, or working with a particular foreign language every day. The publishing houses Difusión (Barcelona), Éditions Maison des Langues (Paris), Klett USA (Chicago), PONS, and Ernst Klett Sprachen offer the right programmes for these efforts all around the world.
Since the days when Johann Friedrich von Cotta supported the publishing activities of greats like Goethe and Schiller, Klett-Cotta has developed a reputation for being synonymous with the best that literature and philosophy have to offer. Its literary stories and narrative histories provide readers with not only aesthetic enjoyment, but chances to gain new insights and reflect on the basic questions of the human experience and society at large. As the exclusive German publishing house of J. R. R. Tolkien, Klett-Cotta is particularly committed to the fantasy literature genre. Its status as a leading publisher in psychology, psychoanalysis, and psychotherapy also makes Klett-Cotta invaluable to the work of analysts and therapists alike.
Junfermann, one of the oldest publishing houses in Germany, deals with topics of focus ranging from communication, coaching, and consulting to taking a proactive approach to one's life, while Schattauer concentrates on specialist literature for psychology, psychotherapy, psychosomatics, and psychiatry. The two companies thus represent ideal complements to the Klett portfolio.
Thanks to the two distribution services Stuttgarter Verlagskontor and Balmer Bücherdienst (for Switzerland), all tasks and requirements pertaining to the field of logistics are covered under the umbrella of the Klett Group. This promotes the group's independence and offers tremendous advantages to all of its partners and customers, as well. In its role as a point of contact for commercial representatives, institutions, and in particular, teachers, Stuttgarter Verlagskontor (along with its local Klett Treffpunkt stores) is also an excellent resource for personalised advice and sales.
