Our mission

Our core mission is to enable learners in Africa to become agents in the Fifth Industrial Revolution by providing access to high-quality educators, learning materials and educational technologies. 

Our Story

Advantage Learning Technologies (Pty) Ltd – known mostly as Advantage Learn – was founded by Trish Pike and her two sons, James Lees and Crispian Lees in late 2012. A combined passion for education, technology and innovation, this dynamic family trio made a dream become reality.

In March 2014 we launched our first e-Learning portal called Addazi (Addazi.com) with our flagship offerings: Further Studies Maths and NBT Preparation! And a year later we launched our website AdvantageLearn.com.

Since then, we’ve expanded our offerings to encompass Further Studies Maths, Further Studies Physics, Further Studies English, Neo Series For Schools, Neo Series Self Study Resources and Exam Preparation Online Courses! We continue to support thousands of learners across South Africa and in greater Africa and we’ve made a marked impact on schools in these regions.
