The founders of Nurture started an award-winning social enterprise called jumpAgrade in 2017 that has since scaled to helping tutor 1,000’s of students, with customers like Trinity College, DCU, UL & UCC and a number of secondary schools across Ireland who fund students who need the service.
When COVID hit, they identified a huge inefficiency in the feedback loop between teachers & students working online within schools. By this time we had become experts in delivering feedback to students because it was the core part of our tuition service.
Software we had built at that time now had a new use case beyond our own tuition service; every teacher using digital tools worldwide needed access to the software we had built. The problem is existing tech platforms used by schools weren’t built with the best practices of educational research at their core. We integrate with these platforms to bring next-generation feedback & assessment to every school.
