Herefordshire and Worcestershire Group Training Association has attempted to follow relevant standards and good practice for accessibility and usability while developing this website, in accordance with the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.

Resizing Text

Finding it difficult to read the text? The use of relative font sizes throughout the site enables users to resize text very easily from the browser menu – see below:

Internet Explorer: View > Text size

Netscape: Edit > Preferences > Appearance > Fonts OR View > Text Zoom

Opera: File > Preferences > Fonts > Minimum font size (pixels) OR View > Zoom

Alternatively, scroll with the wheel of your mouse whilst holding down the control key.

Access Keys

Access Keys are designated keyboard shortcuts that can be helpful for users who are unable to use the mouse and navigate by using the keyboard. If you are using Windows on a PC, press ALT + access key, then enter/return. If you are using a Macintosh press Control + access key, then enter/return.

This site has access keys for 4 key links:

  • Homepage – Access Key=”1″
  • Skip to Content – Access Key=”2″
  • Accessibility – Access Key=”3″
  • Sitemap – Access Key=”4″

Printer Friendly Pages

The pages on this website are controlled by their own print style-sheet. The pages will therefore print main content and headings only. All navigation elements and banners are removed.


If you come across a part of our site that is difficult to use or could be improved in terms of accessibility or usability we apologise and would be very grateful if you could email us at Your feedback is an invaluable part of helping us improve our website.
