Bespoke e-learning

A bespoke e-learning package is an effective way to engage larger teams with the accessibility agenda and provide the knowledge and skills they need to instil it consistently in their work. Our video based modular course content offers training at differing levels according to staff needs, from developers to content writers. It can include staged assessments with certification on completion. Ask us for more details.

Consultancy

Our consultancy services are built around your requirements. We can offer full consultancy from start to finish on a project, or provide help at the stage you need it.

We can also carry out ‘accessibility surgeries’ on a regular basis at your office – a very cost effective method of engaging employees with the accessibility agenda.
