All About Us

Twinkl began life in 2010, in the back bedroom of a Sheffield home. It all started with a simple dream—helping those who teach.

Founders Jonathan and Susie Seaton realised there weren’t enough accessible, reliable and high-quality teaching resources out there. Susie was a teacher back then, and like lots of other educators, she often had to spend precious time making her own materials. It was clear things could be a lot simpler.

So, they got to work, Twinkling away in the evenings and on weekends, putting together teaching resources at home alongside their day jobs. By making these resources just once and sharing them with the education community, Twinkl could free up time for educators and help them focus on what really matters - teaching children.

Twinkl has come a long way since then. From humble beginnings at home in Yorkshire, today we’re a global leader in education resources (it still feels weird saying that!). We’re not done yet, either. There’s still lots of work to do, loads of educators to help, and we’re always finding ways to improve.

We’ve been providing educators across the world with high-quality, trusted teaching and learning resources for over a decade now. They’re all written and checked by our wonderful team of experienced educators, and there are hundreds of thousands of resources to download, with new ones added daily.

A Twinkl account unlocks a curriculum-wide library of over a million resources, all available 24/7 and bursting with essential (and some not so essential!) teaching, planning and assessment materials, for school teachers, online tutors, teachers in training, classroom assistants and parents—anyone that teaches!
