Site structure and navigation

Main sections

The ISCF website is organised into 7 main sections, links to which are arranged in green-shaded boxes across the top of each page.  To aid usability this list of links is in the same place on each page.


Each main section contains up to three levels of sub-sections. Navigation for these subsections is displayed on the left of every page.

Navigational aids

Document downloads

Some pages on this site contain attachments (downloadable documents) in non-webpage formats.
