This accessibility statement applies to the Education Tribunal for Wales website at educationtribunal.gov.wales.
This website is run by Welsh Government. 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 using browser or device settings
- zoom in up to 400% without the text spilling off the screen
- navigate most of the website using a keyboard or 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.
AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
How accessible this website is
We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible:
- some text and background colour combinations may not have enough contrast
- some links share the same link text but go to different destinations
- border styles on some elements make it difficult to see the focus outline
- some hidden page elements contain focusable content
We are working to fix these issues by our next release in March 2024.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Welsh Government is committed to making this website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website has been tested against the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 AA standard.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard due to the non-compliances listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
Several links on a page share the same link text and surrounding context but go to different destinations. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 2.4.4 (link purpose (in context).
We plan to fix this issue by adding hidden text to each link so that screen reader users can tell them apart. This issue will be fixed by our next release in March 2024.
Some elements with the attribute “aria-hidden=true” contain focusable content. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 4.1.2 (name, role, value).
We plan to fix this issue by adjusting the tab index on non-visible links. This issue will be fixed by our next release in March 2024.
