We have used our knowledge and understanding of the ways in which different people access the Internet, to develop a web site that we hope is clear and simple for everybody to use.

We have endeavored to achieve AA accessibility as measured against version 1.0 of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). We are aware however, that a number of the checkpoints of the WCAG are subjective — and although we are sure that we have met them squarely, there may be instances where interpretation may vary.

We regularly test this site using the WCAG accessibility tester but please let us know if there are things we can do better.


In the online learning section of the site there are some flash elements that are not fully accessible. The flash content is not essential to the progression through the course.
