Flying Underground help people
and organisations learn


We’re inspired by the spirit of underground education,
flying universities and edupunk following these four principles:

Learners can and should take control of their learning.

Learners can and should:

Learning shouldn’t be something that is done to you. We can help work with groups of learners to co-design their learning.

Who are we?

Jenny Reekie

I have always loved devising creative delivery techniques, so in 2018, I established Flying Underground to support others with resource and programme development.

I spent 18 years working as a tutor, development worker and manager in community-based adult learning. Specialising in literacy and numeracy delivery, I worked alongside many amazing learners, navigating the journey towards major life goals. Whether you’re a tutor or a learner, there is always something new to learn, mainly about yourself! I’m a firm believer in taking time out to think about and improve what you do and how you do it. I’ve developed tools and approaches for reflective practice and action research to support my own and others’ development. You can find some of them in the Resources section, or contact me for more ideas.

My DIY ethic extends to comics, gardening and not-very-good joinery
