How do I find what I need in the Content Library?
Finding the right work for your students is an important part of using Education Perfect. This guide covers a few things you can try to help you to get the most out of the Content Library.

EP’s new search bar!
The Content Library search function has had an update! If you're looking for a specific type of Content, you can use the search bar.
Open the Content Library on your dashboard, and click the search bar in the top right.
Type in your keyword and press enter. Search results are displayed, and you can then filter by author, curriculum, and content type.
The search will find any content that's accessible to you including Education Perfect Content, My School's Content, and any work other teachers have shared publicly.
Teacher Community results are filtered out by default. To include these search results, use the Author drop down.
Browsing the Content Library
For each subject area, available content is split into different sections. A detailed explanation of each section can be found here, but when browsing manually, here’s what you’ll find:
Featured Content and EP Content
This content is shared among all schools that use a specific curriculum. This content is built and maintained by EP.
You can't edit this content directly, but you can create a copy of it if you would like to customise what’s available!
My School's Content
This section contains:
- Any work that other teachers have made available to everyone at your school.
- Any custom content that our Content Team has made available to your school.
It’s easy to rearrange content in this section, but remember that changes made will affect everyone at your school!
To learn how to share or find custom content on EP, see this article.
Accessing additional subject areas
To locate additional subject areas, first navigate to the Content tab.
In Browse mode, you will see a list of subject areas on the left-hand side. Click Show more subjects to see additional areas. Only subject areas that have content available already will show up in this list.
If you wish to access a subject area outside of this list, you are able to open up other areas. Here's how:
- Toggle to Edit mode.
- In the drop-down at the top of the page, click on your subject (click Show more subjects to display more).
Clicking into the subject opens it up for you, and the subject area will now be displayed in Browse mode as normal. You can now create content in this subject area and search for teacher-made content.
Student access to subjects is controlled by your school subscription. If you find that students are unable to access content in these areas, please contact our Support Team at email@example.com for further assistance.
What if my chosen subject doesn't exist on EP?
Can't find your chosen subject? We are unable to add new subject areas on request, however, we are constantly making improvements to our platform and we'd love to hear what you're missing.
In the meantime, we recommend repurposing a subject area like Cross-Curricular or Resources for your needs.
If you find that students are unable to access the content you have created in these subject areas, your licence may need to be adjusted. Contact our team for further assistance.
