DUBLIN, Dec. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Shaw Academy, the Irish-owned education technology company supported by Enterprise Ireland, has announced another milestone in its growth this year by teaching over 1.5 million students. The company which provides online live learning across a range of subjects, focused on practical skills has trebled its student numbers in the past twelve months and continues to increase turnover by on average 322% year-on-year since inception in 2011.

Courses are taught across six languages, delivered in multiple time zones and geo-priced -- ensuring a global footprint.
Shaw Academy continues to drive down the cost of education and make it accessible to as many people as possible thought viral digital marketing and by forming global partnerships with major players in the e-commerce, telecom, and recruitment space enabling companies such as Adobe, Go Daddy and Vodafone to offer a four week live online course to its subscribers at minimal cost. Currently teaching 400,000 new students every month, Shaw Academy also invested on the technology front establishing a sister office in Bangalore, India in September 2015 which now employs over 120 staff tasked with enhancing the educational offering through personalisation and gamification.
