What is it?

Our Accessibility Skills Assessment framework offers a way to evaluate and measure the accessibility skills of individuals within your organisation. The framework considers accessibility skills across multiple areas, including web accessibility, document accessibility, assistive technologies, inclusive design, service design, and project management.

Why do an assessment?

An Accessibility Skills Assessment will help you identify strengths, weaknesses, and gaps in your organisation’s accessibility skills, allowing for targeted training, development, and improvement efforts.

Our Accessibility Skills Assessment framework will allow you to:

  • Gain an objective measure of employee capabilities.
  • Provide a benchmark to measure individual or team progress over time.
  • Identify skill gaps across key roles within the organisation.
  • Develop a targeted training and development plan.

How does the process work?

  • Step 1: Meet with our team to discuss your priorities.
  • Step 2: We tailor the framework to suit your needs.
  • Step 3: We provide you with the assessment to administer to your team.
  • Step 4: We collect and analyse the results.
  • Step 5: We present you with a series of recommendations.
  • Optional Step 6: We can repeat this on your preferred timeline to benchmark your organisation’s progress.

Framework options

We offer two options for conducting the Accessibility Skills Assessment.

Option 1: Broad Assessment

We provide multiple short assessments tailored to the accessibility needs of different roles. Roles may include developers, designers, testers, researchers, and content creators, among others. This option provides a snapshot of your organisation’s capabilities, and is the best option for assessing multiple teams across larger organisations.

Option 2: Deep Assessment

We provide one longer, deeper assessment spanning multiple areas of accessibility, for all team members to take. This option provides an in-depth look at individual capabilities, and is recommended for smaller, accessibility-focused teams.
