Accessibility statement for T Levels: the next level qualification

This website is run by the Department for Education (DFE), a government organisation.

We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • 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.

You can get advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability on AbilityNet (opens in a new window or tab)

How accessible this website is

This site was tested by the Digital Accessibility Centre (DAC) in October 2019 and was made fully accessible.

Since then we have made substantial additions to the site, which have undergone rigorous accessibility testing by our in-house team. A new DAC test is scheduled for March 2020.
