Accessibility statement for Leadership Learning

This accessibility statement applies to https://leadership.college.police.uk

This website is run by Accipio Leadership Ltd for the College of Policing. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • 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’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet (https://mcmw.abilitynet.org.uk/) 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:

  • The colour contrast of link hover states doesn’t have sufficient contrast (fails WCAG 1.4.3 – Contrast (Minimum))
  • The text used on the “Click here” link doesn’t sufficiently describe the purpose (fails WCAG 2.4.9 – Link Purpose (Context))
  • Some pages have missing heading tags or heading tags not sequential (fails WCAG 1.3.1 – Info and Relationships)

Enforcement procedure

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is responsible for enforcing the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018 (the ‘accessibility regulations’). If you’re not happy with how we respond to your complaint, contact the Equality Advisory and Support Service (EASS).

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Accipio Leadership Ltd is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

Compliance status

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.

Non-accessible content

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

  • Colour contrast of link hover states doesn’t have sufficient contrast (fails WCAG 1.4.3 – Contrast (Minimum)). We plan to fix this by 31 October 2022.
  • The text used on a “Click here” link doesn’t sufficiently describe the purpose (fails WCAG 2.4.9 – Link Purpose (Context)). We plan to fix this by 31 October 2022.
  • A page has missing heading tags or heading tags not sequential (fails WCAG 1.3.1 – Info and Relationships). We plan to fix this by 31 October 2022.
  • Some images do not have a text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content).

Disproportionate burden

Navigation and accessing information

It’s not always possible to change the device orientation from horizontal to vertical without making it more challenging to view the content.

It’s not possible for users to change text size without some of the content overlapping.

Interactive tools and transactions

Some of our interactive forms are difficult to navigate using a keyboard. For example, because some form controls are missing a ‘label’ tag.

We’ve assessed the cost of fixing the issues with navigation and accessing information, and with interactive tools (some eLearning modules) and transactions. We believe that doing so now would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations. We will make another assessment when the supplier contract is up for renewal, likely to be in March 2023.

Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

PDFs and other documents

Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services. For example, we have PDFs with information on how users can access third party content, and forms published as Word documents. By October 2022, we plan to either fix, remove or replace them with accessible HTML pages.

The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they are not essential to providing our services. For example, we do not plan to fix this external resource: https://leadership.college.police.uk/pluginfile.php/3398/mod_resource/content/1/Statutory_Guidance_-_Injunctions_to_Prevent_Gang-Related_Violence__web_.pdf 

Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.

Live video

We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.

What we are doing to improve accessibility

Our accessibility roadmap shows how and when we plan to improve accessibility on this website. Our roadmap is to complete the following by 31 October 2022:

  • Audit (currently being undertaken)
  • Action
