Our Story

Learnlight was founded in 2007 with a dream to bridge the gap between the disparate worlds of education and technology. Our vision was to create an ‘EdTech’ company that harnessed cutting-edge technology to optimize instructor-led training (ILT) rather than replace it, as so many traditional eLearning providers have tried and failed to do.

Our obsession was, and continues to be, empowering talented trainers to create transformative learning experiences, because, at the end of the day, we think people are the real ‘killer app’.

Since our early years as a digital start-up, we’ve worked with hundreds of clients around the globe; launched more than 10 major versions of our platform; merged with Training Express, a pioneer of blended language learning; built a team of more than 200 incredible people; and most recently acquired Communicaid, one of the world’s leading experts in specialized language, intercultural and communication skills training.

Our Team

The Learnlight team is made up of around 300 talented and passionate people, based in over 20 countries around the world. We are lead by a hugely experienced board of directors and back by one of the UK’s leading high-growth specialist investors.

Our Culture

Whilst we know how great our learning platform, solutions and services are, it is the people that make Learnlight special. We are Edtech but with a human-centric approach, both in our training and our approach to technology. Our clients, when asked, always say it is the Learnlight people and the service they deliver that makes working with us a pleasure. For us, partnership with our clients is key and we see ourselves as an extension of client’s team.

Learnlight Labs

Being on the cutting-edge of learning means continuous research, development and experimentation. That’s why we’ve created a laboratory where we collaborate with industry experts and key clients on a range of innovative and exploratory projects. Some of these are open to additional partners, so if you’re interested in our expertise on digital transformation, our blended courseware development capabilities, licensing our award-winning learning platform, or any other ‘out of the box’ projects, let’s talk!
