Accessibility Statement for Learning Pool LMS

This accessibility statement applies to the Learning Pool Learning Management System (LMS).

 

As the provider of the Learning Pool LMS, we are committed to providing a platform that is accessible to the widest possible audience

We want everyone who uses the LP LMS to find the experience rewarding. In support of this vision, we strive to make the LP LMS as accessible as possible to users whatever their level of ability. A guide to achieving this we use the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. Our ultimate goal is for the LP LMS to meet Level AA standards, WCAG’s recommended level of conformance for entire sites.

 

Technical information about the Learning Pool Learning Management Systems accessibility

Learning Pool is committed to making its Learning Management System accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

 

Compliance Status

The Learning Pool Learning Management System is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard. While core areas of the platform are conformant with the WCAG 2.1 standard, we still have work to do. We are investing significantly in further development to bring more areas of the platform to the AA standard with our 3rd party testing organization, the Digital Accessibility Centre

As we grow the platform this will be a continuous focus for us to ensure that the LMS is as compliant with the standard as possible.

 

Non-accessible content

We’ve completed another audit resulting in a number of issues to address. These need to be scoped to determine if they are configuration or whether they need additional development work. Once the review is completed we will be updating the statement.
