Many educational books and digital resources are published each year to support new specifications and it can be a challenge for teachers to find the right resource for their students. To help with this selection, we approve 2-3 textbooks for the specifications listed below.

The following resources for Step up to English by Cambridge University Press and Collins have successfully completed the approval process and are now 'AQA approved'.

AQA Approved logoUsing an 'AQA approved' textbook ensures our subject experts have checked that it provides good support for our specifications. Textbooks which do not carry the 'AQA approved' badge have not been through our approval process and do not provide the same reassurance, even if the AQA name is used in the title.

AQA approved resources can be ordered direct from the publishers. Please note that purchase of these resources is not essential to deliver our specifications.
