About Us

EDLounge Ltd is based in Dinnington near Sheffield, became a Registered Apprenticeship and Work Based learning Training Provider. EDLounge is Proudly listed with the Register of Training Organisations and Registered Apprenticeship Training Provider (ROATP).

EDLounge became a provider of training and education in 2012, as an accredited centre of the awarding body Edexcel.  

The focus and aim from the very beginning was to be an online flexible learning provider. Whilst delivering courses directly and delivering over 3,000 qualifications, EDLounge has seen considerable growth in its; online business, capabilities and product development. EDLounge has delivered successful programmes for adults who have encountered difficulties in their past education as part of a pre-employment programme as well as delivering work-related qualifications.

In 2017 EDLounge was accepted onto the Register of Training Organisations (ROTO) which provided the opportunity to become involved in delivering government funded learning programmes using the EDLounge experience of blended and online learning. 

In May 2017 we qualified to become a Registered Apprenticeship Training Provider (ROATP).

In 2018, EDLounge became 1 of 32 Training Providers across the UK chosen to become a Prime Funder and provider, delivering online/blended education through the Flexible Learning Fund (FLF) Pilot project, which was launched that year. The objective of the FLF Pilot was to develop flexible and accessible methods of teaching delivery for adults, through a combination of traditional classroom teaching, along with online distance learning. This would create a flexible learning experience, with learners provided access to 24/7 learning.
