A web resource for all teaching professionals
Teachfind is a site that delivers teaching resources, lesson plans and CPD materials from a variety of authoritative sources; using a simple search tool.
Some of the sites you relied on previously have been shut down and many others contain search engines that just don’t find what you need. Teachfind solves both of these problems.
What makes this more than ‘just another website aimed at teachers’?
Using a comprehensive set of teaching-specific data and a finely tuned algorithm, our search tool is engineered to find exactly the material you are looking for.
We know that teachers are busy and want a variety of rich teaching resources or handy professional development material at the click of a mouse.
We also know that you want to see everything that’s available so that you can choose the best fit for your needs.

Who are we?
Teachfind is brought to you by Axis12 Ltd. We are experts at building big web sites that make sense of large amounts of content.
Why did we build Teachfind?
- First and foremost, because we have years of experience of managing content written specifically for teachers – at an individual, commercial and governmental level.
- We thought it would be a travesty if teachers were to lose access to all the good material on sites like the National Strategies, QCDA, Becta, Teachers TV and others that have been - or are about to be - shut down.
- The official archived versions of these sites aren't very user friendly
- We wanted to demonstrate what we as a company can do with large repositories of disparate content, using open source technologies and in a short amount of time.
