Access to the Built Environment

KCFE is committed to ensuring the college building and approaches to the building are fully accessible to all users.  As part of this commitment we have carried out an access audit in 2008 and review and update the recommendations of this audit on a regular basis.  As part of our maintenance plan, we consider access on a regular basis, from the upgrading of lighting to providing accessible signage.  If you require further information or would like to report an accessibility issue please contact the access officer.

Accessible information

KCFE is committed to publishing and providing information in an accessible and easy to read format and ensuring the KCFE website is fully accessible.  As part of this commitment KCFE has carried out an access audit of the college website.  This will help us towards our goal of achieving Level Double-A conformance to the web content accessibility guidelines.  The college also uses the Moodle Virtual Learning Environment for the provision of course learning materials in accessible format as much as possible.
