Accessibility Statement for The Skills Network

This website is run by The Skills Network. We aim to ensure as many people as possible are able to use our website. For example, this means you should be able to:

  • Change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • Navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • Listen to most of the website using a screen reader
  • Zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen

We have also made the text as simple as we can so that is it understandable.

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