Accessibility for Websites

Free online workshop

Click here to book this online courseThis workshop is available either as a follow on to our four-part Disability and Employment series, or as a stand-alone session. It has been designed for business owners and managers as a much requested non-technical insight into why and how a website can be made accessible.

The topics covered will include:

  • Why having an accessible website is not just for legal and ethical reasons, but makes good business sense
  • What are the barriers to online access and understanding how to overcome them
  • Practical tools and tips to enable business owners and managers on how to instruct web developers to design/update websites to be more accessible
  • How to write an Accessibility Statement.

This workshop has been designed with input from web developers and disabled users with accessibility needs, and is delivered live by experienced trainers with many years’ experience working in disability sector. We aim to replicate our in-class training approach to our online delivery, so the session is fully interactive, informative (and fun!). Therefore places on the workshop are limited to a maximum of 15 to enable full participation. Our Open Programme courses caters for smaller employers with fewer staff members (ie when you only need 1 or 2 places). Alternatively, for larger employers with groups of 6 or more, we can provide this workshop specifically for your organisation – dates to be agreed on request – and still free of charge if you are based in Devon!

Prior to starting the workshop, all delegates receive a Learner Pack, which contains:

  • brief details about what to expect in the 2 hour workshop
  • background information on accessibility
  • ‘how to’ information about using the Zoom functions
  • links and files needed for the learning activities

Once you’ve complete the workshop, we will also send you a learning review pack which contains all the presentation slides (with additional notes) and space for you to add your own notes and comments to aid your learning. All of the Be Ready Employer Hub training workshops are free to attend (but please see the note below if you are booking from outside Devon).

To book your place on this workshop (reference OS18 Wednesday 24th February 2021, starting at 10:00 am), please click this link to go to our Eventbrite Booking page.

Note: Due to the way all Be Ready Employer Hub services are funded, they are only available free of charge for Devon-based employers. However, we recognise employers from outside Devon my wish to attend our online training. Therefore, we prioritise places for participants based in Devon, with bookings from other areas held on a waiting list until a space place is available. All of the information provided in our disability awareness training is relevant only to UK-based law and regulations. We use Eventbrite as our booking platform and recognise that it promotes its services globally, but we are unable to accept any bookings from outside the UK.
