WHO THEY ARE
Findel Education is an educational resource supplier to schools and nurseries across the world. The company is headquartered in Manchester, UK, and has been catering to the education sector for over 200 years.
WHAT THEY DO
The company’s combined range covers everything from English, Maths and Computing to early years, Science, Sports and secondary art & craft.
The brands such as Hope Education, Philip Harris, Davies Sport & LDA, cover everything from early years & primary to specialist subjects such as PE, science & inclusion.
Earlier this year, the company announced its new business partnership with Dryad General Trading, bringing together two leading suppliers of educational resources across the UAE.
Some of the recent product and services development includes smart ordering solutions that aim to reduce the time & effort it takes for teachers in the classroom to get what they need. The SmartFlow System is one of them.
- SmartFlow System
For teachers, leadership teams & business managers, keeping control of costs & making resource lists can be complicated and time consuming. This is especially true when there are various departments – and perhaps even locations – to deal with. SmartFlow lets the user nominate which individuals can place orders and who within the school has the authority to approve baskets and costs. Teachers can shop from the Findel Education Resources website for everything they need & simply send their ‘basket’ for approval – all without having to fill out an excel or trawl through bulky catalogues. Leadership teams can control school budgets effectively while having visibility over the entire process. It is flexible, easy-to-set up and a free tool for schools to use when creating resource lists.
- Innovative resources
The Findel brands develop hundreds of new and innovative educational resources each year. One such addition is Electronic Phonics. It is an innovative tool to engage children in phonic learning at all levels. The main reason students like it is that it helps to gamify phonic learning & makes it fun. There are different levels of difficulty built in which means teachers can be sure students get the right level of support, while being challenged as they learn.
The company works with schools and partners in over 130 countries worldwide. The international sales team is located around the world and the company has offices in Dubai (UAE), Madrid (Spain), Shanghai (China) and Bangkok (Thailand).
