Making college accessible

Practical resources for colleges to get started with accessibility

An accessible-by-design approach should be at the heart of how any college supports disabled students.

Research into technology and accessibility in FE conducted by All Able Ltd on behalf of Thomas Pocklington Trust, highlighted that colleges across the UK are struggling to ensure the education they provide is accessible for blind and partially sighted students.

To support colleges, we have designed this guide, which takes you through the steps needed to make software, systems and processes more accessible. It will help colleges to better support blind and partially sighted students, by looking at digital accessibility and how colleges can embed accessibility into everything they do.

The guidance is aimed at college staff. Some actions require the support of college leadership, while others can be adopted by any member of staff into their working practices.
