Our 1-day online course gives you the skills to start making your content accessible.
Learn how to create accessible content from somebody who does it every day.
Our content accessibility training gives you an introduction to disability from lived experience. We want you to understand the barriers disabled people encounter every day. It’s important to understand why accessibility is important.
This means our training goes beyond Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1). We’re not here to teach you the minimum legal standards for accessibility. Instead, we focus on creating a culture of inclusion through accessibility. This is for your colleagues and your customers.
Our training is open to anyone who wants to upskill or improve their accessibility knowledge. You don’t need to have accessibility experience to join.
We’re based in the UK and our training times are BST or GMT.
We want to make accessibility easy to apply to your day-to-day work. We’ll give you simple best practices you can understand and use.
Our training covers:
The day will be a mix of teaching, discussions, and exercises.
This is a virtual event, hosted on Microsoft Teams. We use a mix of presenting, screen sharing and breakout rooms for exercises.
Make sure you have access to Teams by app or web browser before the training begins. We will send you a workbook and a guide to using Teams closer to the time. We can also arrange a test session with you beforehand to make sure it’s all working.
You don’t need to read these before the session, but you may find them useful. After the training, we’ll send you an online accessibility toolkit.
