FlashAcademy® shortlisted for Education Resource Awards 

We are thrilled to announce that FlashAcademy® has been shortlisted for the Education Resource Awards (ERA) in two prestigious categories: Primary Resource / Equipment – ICT and Secondary Resource / Equipment – ICT. This recognition stands as a testament to our unwavering commitment to supporting innovation and excellence in English as an Additional Language (EAL) teaching and assessment strategy. 

The journey of FlashAcademy® 

With the recognition of FlashAcademy®’s journey in these prestigious award categories, we are reflecting on where it all began. FlashAcademy® was established with a vision to transform language education, our journey began with the real-life experience and challenges faced by our CEO, Veejay Lingiah,  

“As the only non-white pupil in my primary school, I remember vividly the emotions of feeling different and my desire to fit in with the other kids at school. Children deserve to feel limitless, without language barriers. That’s a big part of why my team and I created FlashAcademy®. Because of my own childhood experiences, the EAL challenge completely resonated with me and as a team we were convinced we could help.” 

In the dynamic landscape of education, FlashAcademy® has emerged as a leader over the past eight years, evolving into the UK’s No.1 EAL platform. With over 1,200 schools and more than 250,000 learners, we have become an indispensable tool for accelerating English language acquisition.
