Accessibility

This website is produced by the Western Australian Department of Training and Workforce Development. It provides access to information about the Department's role and services.

What is accessibility?

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has produced the Website Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0) to assist website designers, developers and administrators in producing accessible pages and content. There are three levels of accessibility compliance; Level A, AA and AAA.

Accessibility features

The accessibility features currently available include:

  • increasing or decreasing the text size (via the users' browser);
  • 'skip to' links and a logical tab order to navigate using assistive technologies; and
  • printer-friendly content.

Text size

Your internet browser has the ability to make the text larger or smaller on this site (or on any website you visit) by changing the settings on your computer.

To check which internet browser is installed on your machine:

  • open your internet browser;
  • select Help from the top menu of your browser;
  • select About (followed by your browser name) from the drop down list; and
  • the screen that comes up will display which browser and version you are using.

This Web Accessibility initiative web page has instructions on changing text size and colours.

Breadcrumbs

Website breadcrumbs help you to determine the location of the page that you are currently viewing.

The 'crumbs' progress from the highest to the lowest level from left to right i.e. starting with the home page and ending with the currently viewed page as shown in the example below.

Printing pages

To print content from this website, simply use the print function of your internet browser. The print function is usually located under the File menu of your browser.

When a web page is printed, it will print the title and location of the page as well as the content. Navigation menus and banners are automatically removed for your convenience to improve readability on paper.

The default contrast for printing is black text on a white background. Any unnecessary images should be removed. It is recommended you use the print preview function of your browser if it is available.

There is also an option to visit the whole of WA Government search.
