GCS Advance Practitioner Accessibility statement

This accessibility statement applies to our digital learning courses offered by GCS Advance. 

The L&D offer is run by GCS. We want as many people as possible to be able to benefit from these courses. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • Go full screen and zoom the pages to a helpful degree, without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the programme using a keyboard or speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the programme using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We’ve also made the course text as plain English as possible so that it is simple to follow for a variety of learning styles.

If you prefer, we have created fully accessible WCAG 2.2 AAA compliant text only versions of all practitioner courses. These are available on request from our support team at: courses.support@cabinetoffice.gov.uk

How accessible the programme is

We know some parts of the programme are not fully accessible. For example:

  • In places, the text will not reflow in a single column when you change the size of the browser window
  • some pages are difficult to navigate using a keyboard
  • some page titles and links are not descriptive
  • on some pages there are elements that rely on path-based pointer gestures
  • the colour contrast ratios on some pages are low/medium

Feedback and contact information

Email courses.support@cabinetoffice.gov.uk if:

  • you find any accessibility problems that are not listed on this page
  • You would like access to a text based course alternative
