We offer bespoke accessibility training for any organisation. Delivered in-house or remotely, we can up-skill developers, designers, content writers, general staff members and auditors.
Why does my team need accessibility training
When dealing with complex web projects, or large-scale web estates maintaining consistency remains key. Training ensures everybody knows what to deliver, but most importantly, how it gets delivered.
Accessibility is regulated for public sector organisations by Public Bodies Websites and Mobile Apps Accessibility Regulations (2018). There’s also 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 implement the principles.
Who can benefit from accessibility training with HeX?
We work with all manner of organisations. From local authorities and higher education, to private sector enterprises.
Each training package we offer is different and bespoke to the person 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
Everyone in an organisation needs a greater understanding of accessibility. Even if they do not work directly with web systems. 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. Inspiring others to be advocates is an essential part of being an organisation that is inclusive.
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.
