Accessibility Statement for Clear Horizon Academy

Clear Horizon Academy is committed to ensuring digital accessibility for all learners. We are continually improving the user experience for everyone, and applying the relevant accessibility standards. Each Clear Horizon Academy course includes accessible course content and image files as PDFs, which are released following the course census date.

It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. Clear Horizon Academy is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.
