Content

Teachers UK Ltd is committed to ensuring our services are accessible to everyone, regardless of their ability. Providing an accessible website has a positive effect on general usability and we believe that websites that are accessible and usable benefit everyone.

We will continue to review, test and modify our website and any future releases of the site, for web accessibility issues and aim to ensure that this is an ongoing commitment.

Web accessibility standards

This site has been validated against XHTML 1.0 Transitional.

We also try to ensure that:

  • All images in our sites contain appropriate alternate text
  • Pages and images on this website are optimised to load quickly and smoothly
  • Our content is written clearly, concisely, free of jargon and in plain English
  • All pages use headings
  • All ‘calls to action’ highlighted with icons and/or different colour font or underlined
  • Symbols (e.g. >) are used in context and for their semantic use
  • Consistent navigation and page layouts are used
  • We have submit buttons on all forms
  • We use cascading style sheets to control layout and presentation

We use JavaScript (a scripting language widely used in website development) to deliver an enhanced user experience for things like rollover menus and conditional content visibility. Google has further information on how to enable JavaScript.
