Accessibility Statement

“Unlocking Opportunities. Enabling disabled learners to achieve.” is committed to providing a website that is accessible to a wide audience with differing ability and using differing technology.

Guidelines and standards we work to

This website endeavours to conform to level Double-A of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0.

This site has been built using code compliant with W3C standards for HTML and CSS. The site displays correctly in the following current browsers:

Windows

  • Internet Explorer 8, 9, 10 and 11
  • Chrome 46
  • Firefox 41

Mac

  • Safari 9
  • Chrome 46
  • Firefox 41

Exceptions

Javascript. Some of the examination elements, such as the countdown timer which provides visual feedback on the amount of time left within the exam, rely on JavaScript.

Images with alt tags. We find it confuses visitors to provide alt tags with every image, and provide them only where they are integral to the meaning of the page.

Tabular layout within learning material. Some learning material layouts use tables to achieve their layouts. The majority of the time these tables contain content which is suited to display as tables, but there are some exceptions to this which we do not feel causes any barriers to accessibility.

Mobile devices. The site is not designed specifically to work on mobile devices.
