Education Authority Northern Ireland
2018 to Now

The challenge

The Education Authority were using a legacy system that was no longer fit for purpose. The site was badly organised and users found it difficult to find what they needed and staff found it difficult to keep track of what was on the site.

What we did

We carried out an information architecture review that highlighted some key areas for improvement. Following our audit we developed a new Drupal site that provided the flexibility to adapt to the changing needs of the organisation over time.

We created a corporate style guide using accessibility checked versions of the corporate colours and produced a modern site that allows the content to shine.

The results

Over the past three years we have worked with EA on a range of successful projects including:

  • Improved search for digital admissions
  • Online Free School Meal applications
  • Northern Ireland Substitute Teacher Register website
  • Music Service subsite development
  • Procurement portal update
  • Private Sector Transport portal
  • Online Parental Payment application system
  • Online requests for Statutory Assessment
