Our commitment and legal obligations
We commit to ensuring the communications we produce are clear and accessible to the widest range of people.
We recognise our obligations under The Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 and the Equality Act 2010.
Web standards and technologies
We have developed the website so that it works on the widest number of devices and web browsers as possible. The site has been tested with disabled users, as well as automated accessibility testing software.
We’re working hard to make the website conform to level AA of the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1). We recognise we have more work to do to achieve this.
Technical information about this website’s accessibility
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.
It has not been possible to ensure that the website meets WCAG 2.1 (AA) at the current time because:
- Some CSS styles, including text and background colours are maintained by students and constitute student artwork.
- Students uploading images are facilitated to provide alternate text but may not always do so.
- Scanned PDF issues of Unknown Quantities constitute student artwork. Image to text recognition software has been used in an effort to make these more accessible.
We are working to meet the compliance as specified in The Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 by the September [2019 / 2020] deadline.
We’re always looking to improve the accessibility of this website. If you find any problems that aren’t listed on this page or think we’re not meeting the requirements of the accessibility regulations, please contact us.
If you are not able to access a service or content on the website, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include details of the content you need and the required format. We will then work with the team who own the service/content to get you what you need.
