Introduction

Welcome Educators!

Welcome to WECANACCESS Academy.

 In this toolkit, you will learn how to create a more inclusive and accessible learning environments.

Image shows a group of blue characters, each with disabilities: one blind, one who is 'stimming' (flapping their arms), one has cerebral palsy and is in a supportive wheelchair, another is in a standard wheelchair and waving; Another character has a cochlear implant, another is doing sign language, one is limb different and is missing her right forearm and the final character is on crutches.

Whether you are a teacher, classroom assistant, head teacher or allied professional, this toolkit will show you how to assess your learning environment and identify what you can do to ensure your pupils can learn what you want to teach them.

Often small changes make a big difference to how you, or your students, access a place and their education. These changes do not have to involve weeks of training or expensive resources, it might be as simple as asking pupils to change their behaviour slightly, or moving the furniture around! We will help you with the WeCanAccess Framework and don’t forget you can find ongoing advice and support on our conversation boards here, whenever you need it.
