This website is run by Services For Education. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

    • Change colours, contrast levels and fonts
    • Zoom in up to 300 per cent without the text spilling off the screen
    • Listen to most of the website using a screen reader
    • Navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
    • Navigate most of the website using just a mouse and on-screen keyboard
    • Navigate most of the website using speech recognition software

We have also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

We have designed this website with features that make it easier to use by everyone, including those with visual, auditory, physical, speech, cognitive, or neurological disabilities.
