Accessibility and inclusion training

The social model of disability is a way of viewing the world, developed by disabled people. It says people are disabled by barriers in society, not by their impairment or condition.

Our training helps organisations to understand and use:

  • the social model of disability
  • inclusive language
  • content accessibility

It will also help you to recognise and remove the physical, digital and societal barriers that disabled people experience. This helps us to create a more accessible and inclusive world for everyone.

We offer 4 different training options to support businesses with accessibility and inclusion:

  • 90-minute introduction to disability inclusion (up to 40 people)
  • 1-hour content accessibility masterclass (up to 300 people)
  • 1-day content accessibility training (for up to 10 people)
  • Bespoke 2-day accessibility training (for up to 10 people)

Customer research and insight

Scope can gather insights and research on the barriers disabled people face online. This research can help you to create more accessible products and services. It can help you meet the needs of 20% of your customer base who you might be preventing from using your services.

We use Scope’s research panel of disabled adults and parents of disabled children to run:

  • focus groups and workshops
  • user interviews
  • surveys

Scope can co-facilitate the research sessions with you.

Crowd-sourcing

Scope has pioneered a tool that can gather customer data quickly and in large quantities. This work is for clients who aim to survey 1000+ disabled people.

How does it work?

  1. We develop research questions together to understand the experiences of your disabled customers. Or you send us a survey you want to use.
  2. We turn your survey into an accessible online survey. Disabled people can easily access this all over the country. We can also run the survey for specific locations.
  3. Alongside your survey, we build you an analytics platform. Here you can see responses and data from your survey as soon as it’s live.
  4. We will also send the data in a spreadsheet at the close of the project.
