Schools site shake-up

DUBLIN-BASED software firm pTools has unveiled its redevelopment of the Department of Education and Skills website.

The new aims to make information more easily available to parents, teachers and pupils throughout the country.

In particular, the site contains a quick Find A School country-wide feature which contains details of all schools and can be accessed through an interactive mapping tool.

There are also links to key primary, post-primary and third level resources online.

The company pTools works with a range of Government customers in Ireland, including the Department of Enterprise, Jobs and Innovation, as well as the Taoiseach's office.
