We're part of the RM Family
You probably already know us as Consortium and TTS. But together, our two leading brands comprise RM Resources... the UK’s biggest and best-known educational supplier.
As a group, we provide everything you need for an exceptional teaching and learning experience, from pens, pencils and glue sticks courtesy of Consortium, to award-winning, innovative robotics from the in-house experts at TTS.
In fact, it has been said that if you took a classroom, turned it upside down and shook it; we would supply everything that falls out (you just need to provide the teachers and students!)
We love what we do; and we’ve been doing it for a long time; supplying schools and nurseries with educational resources that improve learning outcomes, for more than 50 years. We reach more than 33,000 customers across the UK and over 115 countries globally, covering every continent apart from Antarctica.
