Léargas is a national organisation that manages international and national exchange programs in education.
Project Overview

The organisation's previous website was outdated and difficult to use, making it hard for program participants, educators, and other stakeholders to find the information and resources they needed.


Point Blank worked closely with Léargas to develop a new website that is user-friendly, informative, and accessible. The new website features a clean and modern design, easy-to-navigate menus, and clear and concise content. 

The website also includes a number of features that make it easier for stakeholders to manage and participate in Léargas's exchange programs, such as:

  • A user-friendly portal for program participants to manage their accounts and track their progress 
  • A resource section for educators with information on how to implement Léargas's exchange programs in their schools 
  • A Hubspot powered blog featuring stories about Léargas's program participants and their experiences 
How we helped Léargas achieve its goals

By developing a highly customised WordPress CMS that was tailored to Léargas's specific needs, and it provided training and support to help the organisation manage and update its website on its own.

"Working with Point Blank to ensure our new website aligned with both our requirements and those of our customers was truly a pleasure. The team exhibited utmost professionalism, responsiveness, and a personable approach."

Digital Inclusion

From the outset of project the importance of accessibility was a clear deliverable. We worked closely with IA Labs who are Irelands leading experts. 

Engaging with accessibility specialists throughout the design, development, and quality assurance phases ensures a superior outcome.

We also helped Léargas to develop an accessibility strategy to ensure that the website is accessible to everyone, regardless of their abilities. 

This includes features such as high-contrast text, keyboard navigation, and screen reader support. 


Since the launch of the new website, Léargas has seen a significant improvement in user engagement and satisfaction. The website is now the primary source of information for program participants, educators, and other stakeholders. 

It has also helped Léargas to streamline its operations and make it easier for people to get involved in its exchange programs.   

The new Léargas website is helping the organisation to achieve its mission of promoting international and national exchange programs in education. By making it easier for people to find the information and resources they need, the website is helping to connect people from different cultures and backgrounds and create a more inclusive and globalised society. 


All KPI’s were surpassed in the first 9 months, with all metrics exceeding expectations for that timeframe. Léargas now has an engaging and accessible website that helps promote their services to all users and is an invaluable communications tool.
