  • On the User Registration - Apply for a course form page, form fields that collect personal details such as Forename and Surname do not have autocomplete on them.
  • On the User Registration - Apply for a course form page, keyboard focus doesn’t follow a logical order, for example it tabs from forename label to surname label and bypasses the relevant input fields which are accessible later on in the tab order.
