University of Derby logoHow the University of Derby embedded accessibility and inclusion
More than 1200 staff members at the University of Derby have used our eLearning resources to undertake accessibility training at their own pace.
One participant shared: “I thought it was a brilliant course, in particular the case studies giving someone else’s view of how a something is a barrier for them and why, but also the alternatives we could do to support them.”
