The Alliance of Sector Skills Councils is committed to making this website and its content accessible to all users, including people with disabilities.

The site has been developed in line with the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) guidelines and aims to meet the ‘AA’ conformance level requirements.

JAWS 9.0 has been used to test accessibility for users with screen readers.

This website is written to the XHTML 1.0 transitional standard and uses cascading style sheets.

Whilst the Alliance of Sector Skills Councils strives to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.

We are continually seeking solutions that will bring all areas of the site up to the same level of overall accessibility. In the meantime should you experience any difficulty in accessing Apprenticeship Frameworks Online, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
