Website help

This page contains general help information relevant to the website. If you have a query or problem about a specific page that is not addressed here, please contact us.

Finding your way around our website

The tabs at the top of the page are the main sections of the site, aimed at different people – Explain the different sections and tabs and the general navigation of the website. For Example:
When you click on one of the tabs it is highlighted, and the bar below the tab shows the main menu for that section. When you are in a section, the section menu on the left-hand side gives links to other pages in the same section. Below the left hand menu there are sometimes additional 'Related links' to other areas of the site that may be useful. Some section menu links will take you to sub-sections, and then the sub-section menu will also be shown on the left menu, slightly offset from the main section menu.
There is also a breadcrumb trail below the top bar which shows you the steps you have taken to get to the page you are currently on. For example, it might say:
Home - > XXX ->How to apply


Each of these items is a link, so as well as showing you where you are in the website, the 'breadcrumb trail' allows you to go 'up' one or more sections.
