Highfield sold its first book in 1982.

In 1982, Prince William was born, E.T. needed to phone home and Highfield launched its very first training resource – the Food Hygiene Handbook. Since then, we’ve launched hundreds of off-the-shelf and customised training materials covering subjects from security to customer service and driving goods vehicles.

We’re now a global leader in compliance and work-based learning and training materials. Great news for us, and you.

Materials available include books, innovative Highfield-kits (specifically designed for apprenticeship and work-based learning programmes), tutor packs (written to facilitate your classroom delivery), videos, posters and many other training aids.

The advantage of customisation, in-house photography and illustration has added lots to the subject, producing products fit for purpose that our girls and boys in the store can benefit from and more importantly, protect our brand.
