Where we pay for third-party content we are working with the suppliers to ensure that they have published and compliant accessibility statements.

Support for searchBOX (centralised, independent directory of third-party accessibility information)

To help accessibility compliance across the sector, Northampton College supports searchBOX, a centralised, independent directory of third-party accessibility information.

searchBOX catalogues the contact information and accessibility statements of third-party suppliers, enables the sharing of community-generated accessibility statements, and allows users to map their supplier ecosystem.

Users can access third-party accessibility statements using the free searchBOX Finder service. Northampton College encourages all our partners and suppliers to support this effort by ensuring that their accessibility information is included in the searchBOX directory.

Guidance of staff creating accessible content

The College has compiled information for staff on creating accessible content and will continue to add to and amend information over time.

This includes simple accessibility checks, use of fonts, formatting, colours and images.
