Why does my team need accessibility training
When dealing with complex web projects, or large-scale web estates maintaining consistency remains key; ensuring everybody knows what to deliver, but most importantly, how it gets delivered.
With accessibility now being regulated for public sector organisations by Public Bodies Websites and Mobile Apps Accessibility Regulations (2018) and the threat of the Equality Act 2010 adding pressure to any other organisation, there has never been a time like the present to ensure staff within your teams understand the principle of accessibility, and how to effectively implement them.
Who can benefit from accessibility training with us?
We work with all manner of organisations, from local authorities and higher education to private sector enterprises, in order to upskill staff members in regard to accessibility.
Each training package we offer is different and bespoke to the individual or the team that are taking part.
Our training and workshops cover topics relevant to the following:
- Team and project leads
- Communications, Marketing & Content Teams
- Upper management
It’s not just people who work directly with the web systems that we know need a greater understanding of accessibility. From junior level administrators to high-level executives, everyone needs to know why accessibility is important.
Approaching accessibility with a top down approach is important, and inspiring others to be advocates is an essential part of being an inclusive organisation.
Our training provides your organisation with the ability to:
- have a detailed understanding of accessibility and who it affects
- adhere to WCAG 2.0 Level AA
- implement accessibility changes within your role
- champion accessibility in your team and organisation.
