Publish to the course directory is run by the National Careers Service, part of the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA). We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you will be able to:

  • zoom in more than 200% without problems

  • listen to the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS and NVDA)

It is designed to be used by as many people as possible. The text should be clear and simple to understand.

How accessible this website is

Parts of the website aren’t fully accessible:

  • the links on the Course page are not unique and need to be updated to reference each individual course
