Higher Education PSBAR accessibility requirements webinar with UCISA and The University of Sheffield
On Tuesday 7th of February two experienced professionals from the Higher Education sector will join AbilityNet's Amy Low, Service Delivery Director at AbilityNet to discuss the latest in Digital Accessibility in the HE/FE sector. They will unpack sector-focused insights from AbilityNet’s recent research conducted on trends in attitudes to digital accessibility 5 years after the introduction of the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) Accessibility Regulations (PSBAR 2018), which requires public sector organisations to make their websites and mobile apps accessible.

Plus, you’ll learn about trends in attitudes to digital accessibility within HE/FE. The panellists include: 

-Deborah Green, CEO, UCISA 
-Stephen Thompson, Head of Corporate Marketing & Digital, The University of Sheffield

During the webinar you will learn from Stephen at The University of Sheffield, about their experience of being audited by GOV.UK  last year, as part of its role in monitoring compliance with PSBAR. Stephen will outline the preparation that had been undertaken prior to the audit, the experience of being audited and the actions they took as a result of it, and how they are continuing to embed digital accessibility within the institution.  

We will also talk with Deborah Green, CEO at UCISA (The University and Colleges Information Services Association) about the Higher Education results from AbilityNet’s recent Attitudes to Digital Accessibility survey, what this means for the industry and where to go next.

In the webinar, the panellists will discuss: 

-Being audited
-How to prevent audit fails
-HE attitudes to digital accessibility
