HE Update and Accessibility Maturity Model for Higher and Further Education

Date of webinar: 
27 May 2020 - 11:00

Learn about the Accessibility Maturity Model for Higher and Further Education that AbilityNet and McNaught Consultancy have developed based on Alistair McNaught's existing model. Also receive an update on the Public Sector Bodies Accessibility Regulations.

On the webinar, Helen Wickes of AbilityNet provides an update on the Public Sector Bodies Accessibility Regulations, and Ben Watson from the University of Kent describes the very successful OPERA project at his institution, the principles of which were based on our model's approach. 

The model can be very useful for kickstarting work towards the accessibility regulations and also in engaging senior stakeholders in driving the cultural change that needs to accompany the practical ‘to do’ lists.

This webinar is for anyone in the public sector, particularly those in a higher or further education setting.

The webinar lasts one hour and includes a question and answer session. For additional information read answers to frequently asked questions about AbilityNet webinars.
