Overview

Web accessibility is now a required skill of all web developers. And yet many have not had the opportunity to learn it from real experts, who not only know accessibility, but themselves code websites every week.

Learn practical web development techniques to ensure websites are fully accessible across desktop, tablet and mobile. Understand the needs and challenges of people with disabilities, and how to apply the latest techniques to create responsive websites that meet the latest version of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, WCAG 2.1 AA.

The training leaves space to ask questions you may have regarding accessibility, and also includes an online assessment at the end of part 2, so you can gain formal accreditation for your accessible coding skills from Hassell Inclusion Academy.

You will build your knowledge of accessibility through 5 (of 12) practical modules covering:

  • Keyboard and Gestures
  • Content that updates
  • User input (including forms and error messages, labels, and field autocomplete)
  • Custom controls and widgets
  • Review and delegate feedback

Is this for you?

  • This is suitable for all web developers who want to enrich their existing HTML5, CSS and JavaScript skills with the understanding and techniques needed to make the code they deliver accessible and compliant with WCAG 2.1 AA.
  • If you have any questions about whether the course will give you what you need, contact us at learning@hassellinclusion.com and we'll be delighted to help you.
