Are you ready? Meeting the online accessibility needs of all our learners (Code: C0819)

From 23 September 2020, FE and Training providers will have a legal duty to make sure websites (including virtual learning environments and the resources on them) meet new accessibility requirements.

It's not too late to get prepared - and you are legally (and reputationally) vulnerable if you're not prepared. This webinar will take you through the four step process to help your organisation to meet the needs of all its learners, including those with accessibility needs.
