Education Suppliers in Australia
Suppliers in the education sector include textbook publishers, IT companies and education consultants. Many of the textbooks used in Australian schools and are published in the country although a substantial portion is published all over the world and imported. Leading education publishers include Pearson Australia, Firefly Press as well as the multinational publishers, McGraw Hill and Macmillan. The Australian Publishers Association is the trade body for publishers and the Australian Booksellers Association for booksellers. Like in most developed countries the education IT subsector has seen increased activity from traditional players such as Microsoft and also the proliferation of upstarts specialising in education technologies.
