Hassell Inclusion Training

At Hassell Inclusion we have trained digital teams internationally for over 10 years, on-site and remotely.

We believe that digital accessibility thinking, processes and skills need to be embedded within organisations to empower them to do it right every time. Our training courses help you to deliver just that.

Our courses ensure teams are trained in both WCAG and ISO Standards. As lead authors of ISO 30071-1, we have unrivalled experience in training you to get the best from it.

All our training is currently delivered remotely. Our bespoke training is tailored to your organisation.

Contact us about training

  • First part of training to enable developers to understand the needs and challenges of people with disabilities, and how to apply the latest techniques to create responsive websites that meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, WCAG 2.1 AA.

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

  • This course enables QA testers to progressively introduce elements of WCAG testing into their work, providing a fully comprehensive training programme for QA testers. It covers the WCAG Success Criteria, including testing with screen readers and on mobile devices.

  • Second part of training to enable developers to understand the needs and challenges of people with disabilities, and how to apply the latest techniques to create responsive websites that meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, WCAG 2.1 AA.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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)

  • PDF Authors

    Enables PDF authors to understand accessibility principles, apply them in their creation of PDFs from Word, Powerpoint, or InDesign, and use Acrobat Pro to add accessibility to any pre-made PDFs they are asked to publish.

  • A short workshop to understand the digital needs and perspectives of your customers and staff with disabilities through 'Speed Dating'. Enables your staff to learn how people with disabilities use sites and apps, and the technologies they use them with, by speaking directly with people with those disabilities.

  • Leads you through the elements of how to embed accessibility throughout your organisation, to ensure it's implemented consistently well across all of your external sites and apps, and internal digital tools. Covers how to set accessibility policies, get effective training and expert support, and how to govern and measure the Return On Investment of accessibility across your digital product portfolio.

  • 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 using ISO 30071-1's activities. Uses case studies of how real projects have got into difficulty in delivering accessibility to explore how to get it right in requirements analysis, test strategy, sprint and launch planning.

  • A comprehensive programme for key staff who you want to become digital accessibility advocates across your organisation. Via a face-to-face or Zoom session each month, for 6 to 12 months, with optional mentoring, this delivers training and support for implementing your accessibility strategy across its component parts: responsibility, competence and confidence, suppliers, policies and governance.

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