About this training

Sign up for a day of training with one of Scope’s accessibility specialists.

Our 1 day accessibility training gives you an introduction to disability from a personal perspective. We want you to understand the barriers disabled people experience every day. And why accessibility is important.

We’ll help you learn and understand best practices. This helps you meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) criteria and create accessible content in all your work. Accessibility should include everyone: your colleagues, your clients, your customers.

But our training doesn’t just focus on compliance. We’re not here to just teach you the minimum legal standards for accessibility. Instead, we focus on creating a culture of inclusion through accessibility.

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.

This is a ticketed event with people from other organisations. If you want to run this training for your employees only, we offer this session to businesses. Take a look at our content accessibility training page for more information.

What you will learn:

We want to make accessibility easy to use in your daily work. We’ll give you simple best practices you can understand and use.

Our training covers:

  • why accessibility is important and the benefits
  • the social model of disability
  • the 4 core principles of accessibility
  • why researching and testing with disabled people is important
  • plain English and writing accessible content
  • accessible headings and structure
  • accessible colours, fonts, and links
  • pdf, image, graph, and video accessibility
  • accessible presentations

The day will be a mix of teaching, discussions, and exercises.

By the end you will be able to:

  • talk about why accessibility is important in your work
  • start applying best practices
  • make your work more accessible
  • use reference materials and the accessibility community to continue learning

Format and training materials

This is a virtual event, hosted on Microsoft Teams. We use a mix of presenting, screen sharing and breakout rooms for exercises.

After the training, we’ll send you an online accessibility toolkit. This has links to further guidance on:

  • all topics covered in the training
  • getting started with accessibility in your organisation
  • accessibility events, forums, meet-ups and blogs
