Web accessibility training

Design for every user

Did you know that 1 in 5 of your customers have accessibility needs?

There are ethical, economic, and legal reasons why your websites and digital products should work for everyone. But ultimately it's about providing a superior experience to all customers alike.

Our interactive, expert-led, classroom-based web accessibility training gives you practical advice on how to cater to accessibility needs and start establishing a culture of digital inclusion within your organisation.

You'll finish the day with a great understanding of:

  • How users with accessibility needs use computers
    You'll learn about the various types of disabilities that affect web and computer use, the challenges that they fact and the types of software and hardware people use
  • What the law says about digital access
    Understand how the law on disability affects your organisation, and how to make sure that you provide an inclusive experience for your visitors
  • How to create inclusive digital content
    Images, video, tables and interactive content - we'll show you how to make all your digital content more inclusive!
  • How to use the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG)
    They're really overwhelming, but once you get confident and comfortable with using WCAG they can become an indispensable tool for you
  • How to check your content
    Once we've worked through the basics, we'll show you how to apply what you've learned through some hands-on testing

What you'll need to bring:

  • A laptop and charger, for taking notes and trying things out
  • If you're bringing a Windows machine, then we recommend installing the free-to-use NVDA screen reader
  • If you're bringing a Mac, we'll be using the built in VoiceOver feature
  • For the testing element we'll be demonstrating some plugins for Chrome, so also download Wave extension and Contrast Radio Checker

Meet Grant Broome, your trainer

Grant has been specialising in web accessibility for over a decade, consulting with a variety of organisations on how to make their online content accessible to people with disabilities.

He's audited hundreds of websites and provided many training courses to various European government teams and companies like Virgin and Legal & General. He has also spoken at events for the British Computer Society, Headstar and at the Bett Show.
