05 November 2017 Access Auditing Update & Future Courses
Access for All

Access for All recently held their second 'Access Auditing and the Equality Act' course in conjunction with Centre for Accessible Environments. The course was held over two days at Le Grand Courtil and La Nouvelle Maraitaine and was hosted for the second time by Vin Goodwin of the CAE. A total of 13 delegates attended the over subscribed course and gained additional skills in carrying out access audits, including practical exercises, and knowledge of how the Equality Act impacts upon provision for Access in the UK. Due to the success of the course Access for All intends to run another course in the new year, probably towards the end of March. We already have expressions of interest from four people including one from Jersey. If you wish to attend the course or require any further information please email Tony Yates at places@access.gg
