Resources Hub: Accessibility Toolkit


Resources Hub Menu / Accessibility Toolkit


Welcome to the Accessibility Toolkit

Students have a range of abilities, and not everyone will disclose: there are likely students in your course with learning or sensory disabilities. They are not required to tell you, and they may not feel comfortable telling anyone Rather than asking students to identify themselves to you, employ practices (like those in the toolkits below) that reach a wide variety of learners.

Accessible content benefits everyone, it is easier to understand, more organised, and allows you to reach a wider audience with more flexible and adaptive content.  The accessibility of web based content is now covered by legislation, and the toolkit below is designed to support colleagues make simple and easy adjustments to learning materials to enhance accessibility and improve engagement.

Additional resources are being developed and will be added to the toolkit in due course.
