Creating accessible resources boot camp [Code: 1DCARBC]


Who is the course suitable for?

Primary and secondary teachers (and teaching assistants), NQTs, and those with responsibility for special educational needs or an interest in moving into this area.


About the course:

In July 2015 the UK government published statistics showing how 15.4% of pupils in schools in England had identified special educational needs. That's some 1.3 million pupils. Creating accessible resources for pupils is important to ensure equity of access for all.


This course demonstrates how a teacher can create more accessible documents, presentations and images for online or printed distribution for use in their day-to-day practice; and also shows best practice in creating a wide variety of alternative formats.


What the attendee will be able to do at the end of the course:

  • Recall common accessibility issues encountered by pupils when accessing teacher-created digital and print resources

  • Test digital document and presentation resources for common accessibility issues

  • Design and create resources to overcome accessibility issues commonly encountered by pupils with teacher-created digital and print resources leading to greater equity of access


How the course benefits an attendee's school:

  • The course supports teacher skillset development to design and create accessible resources, which will help ensure pupils with SEN are given access to the curriculum and are motivated and challenged to the same degree as their peers. Attendees on their return can share current best practice, research and innovative ideas with the wider school community to aid in ensuring greater equity of access. It will provide a school with practical support in helping meet its responsibility in providing appropriate special education needs provision as required on a pupil-by-pupil basis


Post course support:

  • Certainly, if you want to phone or email a question to the trainer; or send through a resource you’ve created for your trainer’s feedback; this is actively encouraged

  • JSH's +1 offer: At the end of all of our events the trainer will stay behind for an additional hour for any questions you may have or to provide additional support. However, we know at the end of a training event a delegate is often tired, or needs to get home or perhaps return to school. So for all JSH Learning courses, once you have attended a course, the next time that same course is in your area, if you wish to come along at the end of the day to ask a question that arose or you did not get time to ask first time, this is actively encouraged (we just ask you drop us an email first)
