Invest in Yourself



It is important to ensure that your skills and knowledge are up to date in order to deliver quality learning experiences that are as inclusive and accessible as possible. In today's fast moving technological environment and the changing expectations of students, Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is more important than ever.

Inclusive practice is good practice

By increasing your understanding of accessible and inclusive practices, you can improve the learning experiences of all your students. Used appropriately, technology can really help in this ambition. We have many tools, resources and publications that you may find helpful. In addition to delivering online workshops, we also run the Accessible Practice IT Support Programme.

Relevant for all roles

It's not just teaching and learning - accessibility and inclusion are relevant to a wide range of roles such as, marketing, administration, management, learner support, library services, network and IT services.
