Our Policies

EDLounge Ltd. embraces the Equality Act 2010. Within EDClass and EDQuals we wish to create and maintain a trusting, secure and happy online service and work environment where everyone can work as equals regardless of:

  • age
  • disability
  • gender reassignment
  • marriage and civil partnership
  • pregnancy and maternity
  • race
  • religion or belief
  • sex
  • sexual orientation

referred to as the 9 'protected characteristics' of the Equality Act 2010.


Our aim is to equip learners with an awareness of our diverse society and to promote the value of difference. This will be achieved by adherence to the following principles: 

 Any discrimination against staff, learners or visitors on the basis of any of the 9 'protected characteristics' is not acceptable

 All learners have equal opportunities to achieve their potential

 The primary objective of EDClass and EDQuals will be to educate all learners and prepare them for life 

 Learners, staff and visitors will show respect for, and appreciation of, one another as individuals 

 Learners, staff and visitors have the responsibility to promote equal opportunities and to challenge stereotypes 

 The EDLounge community consists of a diverse range of people – we need to respect our differences

Equal Opportunities

All learners, staff and visitors working with the EDClass online resource have a right to be treated with respect. This includes a right to:

 Study, learn and work to realise their potential

 Physical, emotional and verbal respect, free from violence, bullying and abusive language

 Respect for the 9 protected characteristics

 Freedom from sexual comments or harassment and inappropriate use of humour

Students and adults within EDClass and EDQuals are encouraged to challenge any inappropriate behaviour or comments
