Accessible Digital Learning: A Win for the Third Sector
As employees have shifted to remote or hybrid working, a key challenge that L&D professionals are facing is ensuring continued access to training. This is especially relevant in the third sector, with organisations already having very limited resources.

Even though you may be being asked to do more with less budget, the good news is that you can still deliver high-quality, consistent, and accessible learning and training by switching to an online delivery model. You can fully equip all your team members with the skills and knowledge they need to perform well in their role, regardless of where they are based in support of the organisation's objectives. And you can do so in a cost-effective way.
But there’s much more to it than that.
With the increasing recognition that the emotional wellbeing of your team is vital, making sure they feel happy and fulfilled at work has never been more important. By using bespoke digital learning content you’ll be able to help your people sustain successful performance over time and ultimately ensure they avoid burnout. Getting this right is, of course, a win for everyone.
Learning Accessibility is Key
To get the most from your digital learning, accessibility is key. Our bespoke eLearning can be structured such that people who use screen magnification and screen reader technology can have full access.
In a recent project with RNIB, the Royal National Institute of Blind People , we created and delivered digital and accessible learning that helps employment advisors throughout the UK provide better support to the 11,000 people with sight loss in the country who are currently actively seeking work, as well as help the individuals themselves to find employment opportunities. As a result, RNIB were able to reduce the need for travel and associated costs and successfully reach a dispersed audience.
Of course, digital learning is all measurable too, which means that you can access reports to demonstrate the value you’re getting from training, as well as track compliance, at any time.
