Fluirse Education Solution’s specialises in designing and developing interactive media and software that coincides with the school curricula. Fluirse aspires to become the main provider of curricula-aligned software and they aim to do this by working closely with educators across the board in order to improve the teaching and learning experience for all. Anois, the company’s flagship series of products, were developed to address the needs of Irish language teachers and their curriculum. Anois was extremely successful so the company started working on a range of other primary school curriculum products.

Fluirse is unique in their approach as they:

  • work closely with teachers, parents and education experts
  • support teachers and parents with specialised training materials
  • put education first and integrate technology where useful
