EDLounge was created in 2009 as an inclusive resource to educate students that were in inclusion and exclusion, with an aim to develop their knowledge in Maths, English and Science. EDLounge now delivers a high quality provision to students who are: home educated, part of the travelling community, vulnerable, at risk, foundational learners, disengaged, demotivated, or have low level literacy or numeracy.
In 2012, EDLounge was granted to be a registered centre and have worked with EDEXCEL, NOCN, City and Guilds, AQA, and NCFE examining bodies to become an approved and verified centre (no: 67674) for some academic and vocational subjects.
In 2013, we were granted to offer Functional Skills in English and Maths where we have hundreds of lessons and practice exams for your learners.
In 2014, we launched our remote learning and online support / supervision platform known as EDClass so that we can cater for all your students, teaching assistants, senior leadership and parents’ needs. Within this support and supervision mechanism we offer tutoring, assessment, pre-assessment, verification, and expertise in any subject for any age group. We offer support and supervision to any individual that is on the system, whether they are on-site or off site and undertaking theory, practical, knowledge or academic lessons. All our support officers are uniquely trained to have a wealth of knowledge and understanding of the EDLounge system, including lessons, qualifications, methodology, exams, coursework, and practical elements, enabling the student to continually learn and progress.
Our expert support officers have an extensive knowledge of the qualifications we offer and put into place an exclusive pre-assessment, assessment and feedback service for the students alongside safe supervision. To help with the qualifications, a range of practice, live and mock exams are available for the students to prepare themselves for their BTEC and GCSE courses. We cater for every aspect of the next generation BTEC courses and we offer a comprehensive support mechanism for the students undertaking these.
Our support and supervision officers support students in exclusion, home education, isolation or in inclusion, whether they are on or off-site with a thorough and robust safeguarded provision which addresses government legislation for alternative provisions on/off-site for academies. Students are able to ask and receive help, feedback, comments and direction from our support officers so that all students can progress through EDLounge.
In 2014, We started to work overseas with partners in The Philippines and Australia.
