What we Do

 

South Africa has some critical failures when it comes to educating our future leaders. FastAcademy aims to provide support to students by focusing on accessibility and content quality.

We utilise a no-tech to high-tech approach to enable schools, teachers and parents with quality mathematics tuition and language support.

We develop in-house language augmentation technology (Aweza) to assist with accessibility and ensure that language is not the hinderance to learning.
