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

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

Known limitations for Hereward College:
  • 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 our services, and forms published as Word documents. Any PDFs or Word documents currently on the website are being reviewed and where possible we are doing our best to make sure everything is in text on the web pages rather than in PDF format.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations

PDFs and other documents

The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they’re not essential to providing our services. 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’re doing to improve accessibility

We will limit the use of PDF where possible to avoid the limitations of accessibility which cannot be resolved on a PDF.
