Scope accessibility training services

Our content accessibility training offer

We offer 3 different training options to support businesses with content accessibility:

  • 1-hour accessibility masterclass
  • 1-day content accessibility training
  • 2-day bespoke accessibility training

Content accessibility masterclass

We can run a 1-hour masterclass for your organisation, training multiple teams at once. This will help with organisation-wide awareness of disability and accessibility.

The class covers the basics of content accessibility. It will give attendees a base knowledge of how to make their work more accessible, such as:

  • webpages
  • marketing assets
  • products and services
  • internal work and processes, like emails, presentations, HR documents or style guides

The masterclass involves as many people as you want at every level. This means you can start prioritising accessibility for all colleagues, clients, and customers. Not just training employees working in digital services.

Full day content accessibility training

This is a full day of training course on creating accessible content. Our accessibility specialist will cover:

  • why accessibility is important to your organisation
  • the social model of disability
  • the 4 core principles of accessibility
  • researching and testing your content with disabled people
  • writing accessible copy
  • structuring your content
  • accessible colours, fonts and links
  • accessible PDFs, images, graphs and videos

After the session, we will give you a content accessibility toolkit. This has links to further guidance and resources. You’ll also have access to the training materials.

We do also offer bespoke 2-day accessibility training for businesses. This offers more comprehensive and tailored training for your team or department.

Bespoke 2-day accessibility training

We will work with your business to tailor accessibility training to your needs. This will help us give you the right support for your teams and their experience. It also lets us design the training around your industry. And use examples specific to your website.

We’ll take a deeper look at your webpages and support you to improve accessibility. Attendees will have the chance to work on the things they’ve learned together. With our guidance and experience for support.

Pre-training discovery

This will be a short meeting to find out what training support your organisation needs. We’ll talk to you about things like:

  • which teams will be attending and the type of job roles
  • your content creation processes
  • what accessibility experience attendees and other teams have
  • which content is the most helpful to the workshop, like webpages, pdfs, forms and so on
  • what equipment and software attendees can access.
