Summary of Multi-User Teaching Resource Licence

Please note: Our Teaching Resource Licence is not a Creative Commons licence – please see further below. For the full licence text click here.

You can:

Teach With — copy, edit and provide the licensed material to those students you teach in any medium or format for the purpose of educating them and/or their private study.

But, Limited Sharing – you have been issued a single licence for your own use and the right to grant a limited licence to (a) your students (up to 1,000 of these) to use the licensed material as part of your teaching and their own private study; and (b) those teachers and/or teaching support staff (up to 25 of these) designated to receive the licensed material for the purpose of their own private study or teaching purposes.

TES Education Resources Limited has been granted a licence by the owner of the licensed materials to share those licensed materials with you. As long as you comply with the licence terms, TES Education Resources Limited as the licensor cannot revoke these freedoms other than in certain limited circumstances (such as if the licensed material is found to be in breach of our website terms and conditions).

Under the following terms:

Attribution — You must give appropriate credit to the author of the licensed material, provide a link to the licence, and indicate if you have made changes to the licensed material. You may do so in any reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests the licensor, the author of the licensed material, or its owner endorses you or your use of the licensed material.

Limited Sharing of Derivatives (except to teach) — if you remix, transform, or build upon the material, you may not distribute the modified material except to (a) those people you teach; or (b) those teachers and/or teaching support staff permitted to receive them under this license.

Compliance - You must ensure that teachers and/or teaching support staff who receive the benefit of this licence also comply with the provisions of this licence.

No additional restrictions — You may not do anything that restricts other licensed users from doing anything that the licence permits.


  • TES Education Resources Limited will generally make the licenced material available for download by you for an extended period of time after purchase, but cannot guarantee that it will be available for download forever.
  • You may not have to comply with the licence for parts of the material that are already licensed to the public for free or where a particular use of the material is permitted by an applicable exception or limitation under copyright law.
  • The licence over the material is granted on an "as is" and “as available” basis and no warranties are given in respect of the accuracy of the licensed material or its fitness for a particular purpose.
