Renfrewshire Council is committed to making iLearn, its learning platform accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

This accessibility statement applies to iLearn, Renfrewshire Council’s learning management platform.

Compliance status

This learning platform is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.2 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below.

Non-accessible content

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons:

  • Link identified only by colour (success criteria 1.4.1)
  • Keyboard focus indicator is not always visible (success criteria 2.4.7)
  • Missing button in form – two instances (success criteria 3.2.2 and 4.1.2)
  • Invalid WAI-ARIA role, state, or property - aria-expanded menuitem – two instances (success criteria 4.1.2)
  • Select box has no submit button (success criteria 3.2.2)
  • A WAI-ARIA element contains a role, state or property that is invalid or not allowed on this type of element (success criteria 4.1.2).
  • Element ID is not unique (success criteria 4.1.2)

  • ILearn is a Moodle-based learning management system supplied to Renfrewshire Council by Didactic. It is important to distinguish between the accessibility of the platform itself and that of the content hosted on this platform by Renfrewshire Council.

    Renfrewshire Council takes accessibility very seriously and members of staff creating online learning are supported to ensure that they know how to make content accessible. However, the accessibility of individual courses and content varies.

    The main areas of non-compliance within courses are:

  • alternative text for visual content may be missing or insufficient (success criteria 1.1.1)
  • PDFs, Word documents and PowerPoint files may not have headers to facilitate navigation (success criteria 1.3.1)
  • some PDF files may not be readable with screen readers
  • some videos may not have accurate enough captioning.
  • If you experience any difficulties accessing content on iLearn, please get in touch with us.

    The content is not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
    PDFs and other documents

    The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they are not essential to providing our services.

    Live video

    We do not plan to add captions to live video streams because live video is exempt from meeting the accessibility regulations.


    Our maps are mostly accessible; however, we do not audit these for accessibility as we do not provide maps for navigational purposes, and therefore these maps are exempt from the accessibility regulations.
