Contributor FAQs

 

Submission process

Go to our Share resources page and register as a contributor. You’ll need to upload your resources on this page too.
As soon as you have a resource published, you’ll gain free access to everything on the site. You’ll also start to accrue royalties on your resources, which are paid twice a year. See Royalties for more information.
We have a small editorial team and lots of resources to work with (thanks to our generous contributors!), so it may take some time for your resources to be published. You’ll get an email when a resource is published, or if we decide not to publish one of your resources.
We aim to publish as many resources as possible but there will be occasions when we can’t. The most common reasons for a resource not being published are:
 
  • we already have similar content on the site
  • some or all of the content is copyrighted
  • it’s not a priority area for us at the moment.
You’ll need to share resources at least twice a year to keep your key contributor status, which gives you free access to the site.
We prefer resources in Word or PowerPoint format, and Excel where appropriate. We have priority topics and areas too – you can find these here.
One of our editors (all qualified teachers) will review them and the activities may be tweaked or differentiated and teaching notes added. Quotes/facts will also be checked. The resources will then go to our design team to make sure they're presented in the most student-friendly way.

The resources then go back to the editing team for final checks before being published.
Your resources will remain on the site for as long as they are relevant and applicable to the curriculum and specifications. We want to make sure all the resources on our site are useful to teachers, so any content that is out of date or not suited to a specification may be archived.
We have to adhere to strict copyright rules so please avoid including any of the following content in your resources:
 
  • images or photos that you don’t have permission to use
  • content that has been taken from elsewhere, either published books or online
  • newspaper articles
  • extracts from books which are still in copyright.
We don’t usually include student-style answers within resources and we don’t publish schemes of work.
No. By signing our Copyright and Royalties agreement you are agreeing that the content you’re submitting will only be published on Teachit sites.
We like to publish resources which are student focused with a mix of creative activities. We publish a range of resources to suit different teaching and learning styles, and we love to see new approaches to classic classroom activities!

Please also check our priority list which can be found at the top of the submit form. This will tell you the topics or areas we are keen to receive resources for.
 

Royalties

Royalties are paid twice a year if you have accrued £20 (if based in the UK), or £100 if overseas.
They will be paid by bank transfer by the AQA payables team. You’ll get an email from us in advance letting you know how much you will receive.
Royalties are paid twice a year and amount to 15% of total subscription revenue for the site. This is divided up between all contributors for all resources, so you will receive a proportion of this, depending on how many pages of resources you have published.
Royalties are calculated on the number of pages you have published, not how many times the resource has been downloaded.
