Accessibility Statement

This accessibility statement applies to the Turing Scheme website.

The website is run by the Turing Scheme delivery partner and we are committed to making our online platforms accessible to all and aim to meet Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 level AA.

We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. You can use the One Click Accessibility plugin to make changes to the website and make it more accessible for you. You can find the One Click Accessibility plugin at the top right-hand corner of the page.

On this website, you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • underline links
  • increase text size and zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver).

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.

How accessible this website is

We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible:

  • Some documents are in PDF format and may not be fully accessible to screen reader software but measures have been taken to ensure these documents are as accessible as possible

Compliance status
