Are you driving your Business forward with the power of accessibility?
The digital world presents a number of obstacles to disabled people. Under the Equality Act 2010, organisations have a legal obligation to their customers, both internally and externally, to ensure that all their IT channels and applications are accessible to disabled people who may use a variety of access devices and equipment.
The Equality and Human Rights Commission, AbilityNet, BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT and Activ have developed the only product of its kind in the UK - the Web Essentials e-learning course. This 90 minute, cost effective, on-line course is designed to equip individuals and businesses interested in accessibility best practice with a fundamental understanding of digital inclusion.
Completing the Web Essentials e-learning course will lead to a valuable certificate of achievement, enabling those who complete the course and complete a short test to share their skills amongst colleagues and other designers, developers and web site producers.
Web Essentials provides tools to help you test accessibility at all stages of web site development and provides recognised training standards for identifying usability problems and how to easily solve them.
