Website standards compliance
Our website is built according to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. (AA standard)
It is designed in line with recognised best practice, and training in creating accessible content is provided to all site owners and editors.
We provide tools to enable editors to audit their content, meaning that our website content can be accessed via assistive technologies such as screen readers or text-only browsers.

Content which may not be accessible
We are continuously working with editors to ensure they produce accessible content. Our site does contain 3rd party content and functionality. We are working with suppliers and our own site owners to ensure that any non-UCL EDUCATE content we publish, or systems we link to are also compliant.
However, sometimes this may be out of our control. Our ambition is to reduce our reliance on non-compliant sites and tools, and we regularly review our supplier relationships.
Please get in touch if you encounter a specific issue which we may be able to help you with.
