This accessibility statement applies to the Get into Teaching website.
This website is run by the Department for Education. 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.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

This website is partially compliant with the WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) version 2.1 AA standard, due to the following non-compliances:
- The focus state of the buttons in our webchat widget does not have sufficient colour contrast. This fails to meet WCAG 2.1 1.4.11 Non-text Contrast (Level AA)(opens in new window).
What we’re doing to improve accessibility
We are currently working to address the known accessibility issues.
We’ll continue to test the accessibility of this service as it develops.
