About us

We’re a UK Science Park team commited to making language learning amazing!

A few of our team

Days (and often nights) at Learning Labs are spent obsessing over how to improve language learning.

The FlashAcademy Founders

Veejay and Richard originally founded Learning Labs with the invention of FlashSticks® language Post-it® Notes, now sold all over the world. The FlashAcademy® platform was then developed in close collaboration with schools, to better support MFL and EAL needs.

Innovation Birmingham Campus

Every part of the FlashAcademy® platform is designed and built in-house, making us agile enough to be able to adapt and improve quickly.

Education liaison team

Working closely with schools to ensure they have the best possible experience with FlashAcademy® and relaying new ideas back to the team, so we can continue to improve the platform for all users.

Talented developers & designers

Every part of the FlashAcademy® platform is designed and built in-house, making us agile enough to be able to adapt and improve quickly.

Our awesome linguists & teachers

Using experience of teaching in Primary & Secondary, alongside our multilingual team, to oversee that the pedagogy and content meet the current and future needs of schools.
