Not many people know this, but UVAC is the University Vocational Awards Council. It is clearly an organisation that makes few concessions to those not familiar with its work. The news page begins: "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit."

Little wonder that the first words guiding visitors into its website are "What is UVAC?" (It wants more vocational courses in universities, as UVAC would not say).
