Hassell Inclusion Academy

At Hassell Inclusion we want to change the way people think about accessibility and believe that accessibility thinking, processes and application needs to be embedded within organisations.

Our training courses deliver just that – everything from helping you comply with the new ISO 30071-1, to interactive training classes in London, or bespoke training delivered where you are.

  • A short workshop to help you build the case for, and put inclusion and accessibility right into the heart of your digital products, understand what it takes to embed this across your organisation, and how to use the benefits of digital accessibility to meet your organisation’s business goals. You can attend a public workshop, or we can deliver a bespoke workshop on your premises.

     

  • Enables Product Managers, Project Managers and Business Analysts to understand how to play their role in embedding accessibility efficiently throughout the software development lifecycle for sites and apps. Uses case studies of how real projects have got into difficulty in delivering accessibility to understand how to get it right in requirements analysis, test strategy, sprint and launch planning.

  • Leads you through the elements of how to embed accessibility throughout your organisation, to ensure it's done well and consistently well across all your sites and app. Covers how to set accessibility policies, get effective training and expert support, and how to govern and measure the ROI of accessibility across your digital product portfolio. Based on Jonathan Hassell's best-selling Inclusive Design for Organisations

  • Web Developers

    Enables Developers to understand the needs and challenges of people with disabilities, applying the latest techniques to create responsive websites that meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, WCAG 2.1 AA.

  • UX & Visual Designers

    Introduces accessible design checkpoints in WCAG 2.1 AA and enables designers to know how to apply them creatively in their work, rather than just learning them in isolation.

  • QA Testers

    Enables QA testers to progressively introduce elements of WCAG testing into their work. Strips away the complexities of WCAG to introduce success criteria/checkpoints that are easy to pick up by testers who never wish to become “experts in WCAG”.

  • Content Authors

    Enables content authors to understand accessibility principles, and how to author accessible text, images and media, making best use of the accessibility features available in authoring tools, such as Content Management Systems (e.g. AEM), Social Media (e.g. YouTube), and document creation systems (e.g. PDF creation)

  • Accessibility Auditors

    Full training (in 2 parts - elementary and advanced) for people wanting to gain accreditation in accessibility auditing of desktop and mobile websites. Provides understanding of all WCAG 2.1 AA success criteria, how to test sites against them efficiently, and how to document findings clearly in audit reports.

  • Leaders in Inclusion

    A comprehensive programme for key staff who you want to become digital accessibility advocates within your organisation. Delivers training and support for implementing your accessibility strategy across its component parts: responsibility, competence and confidence, suppliers, policies and governance.

How people feel about our courses

  • By far the best: After attending a good few of these kind of courses in my consulting life, this one was by far the best I’ve been on. I’d love to have you guys come back again to help us further…

  • Should be required for all testers: Fantastic course - should be required training for all testers. Can see the benefits to our team and definite improvements we can make. I would now feel more comfortable in testing further regarding accessibility and carrying out an audit. The trainer was amazing, the content of the course was perfect.
