  • Constant developing our products to exceed your expectations.
  • Being recognised by our customers as a leading provider of educational and technology learning platforms.
  • Opening the framework of qualifications and resources we offer to markets

What will happen to EDLounge?

EDLounge will still be the name for the business group – which includes EDQuals, EDArcade, EDExams, EDObserve, EDStarz and Analysis of Sport.

Under the separation, EDLounge will become the name for our training centre – used by employers, apprentices, long-term unemployed and more.

Why are we making the change?

EDClass has been the product name for the alternative provision part of our business for some time – so it won’t affect the level of service you receive.

However the move helps us with both Ofsted inspections and to separate any funding we may be provided.

The move will hopefully make things clearer for you. We will making some changes to our website in the coming weeks.
