About Innova Press

Innova Press is a brand-new ELT publisher, launched in late 2017 with a mission to create true innovation in language education. Innova creates readers, test preparation materials and other titles based on the latest research into language education, with a specific focus on actual learner needs.

Our first series of graded readers for young learners was published in May 2018. Accompanying these readers on this website are free downloadable audio and comprehensive notes to help parents use the readers at home, and teachers to use them in class or online.

Innova now publishes a range of practice and preparation tests and self-study books for many of the most popular English language exams, including IELTS, TOEIC, TOEFL and CEQB,  with more titles added regularly.



Richard Peacock, President, Innova Press

President – Richard Peacock

Richard Peacock has worked as a teacher and publisher for nearly 40 years. He began teaching children and businesspeople in Japan, and then moved into curriculum development with Time Life in Hiroshima and Osaka. After a few years away from ELT, working in corporate communications, he set up his own publishing company in Tokyo, developing both ELT and corporate communications materials. In 1997, he moved to Thailand to help establish one of the first bilingual schools in the country. In 2001, he became General Manager of Garnet Publishing in the UK, a position he held until leaving to set up Innova Press in 2017.




Business Development Director – Terry Phillips

Terry Phillips has worked in ELT for more than 40 years as a teacher, teaching supervisor, manager and language school owner.  As an ELT consultant, he has worked in more than 25 countries in all parts of the world, advising state and private universities and language institutions on all aspects of educational management including finance. For the last 25 years, he has been a freelance writer with his wife Anna, producing more than 180 published books in ELT, including the award-winning multi-level EAP course, Progressive Skills in English [Garnet Education].
