Goal: To increase the Access expertise locally by partnering with CAE
One of our key goals is to increase accessibility in the Bailiwick. One of the ways to do this is to increase the number of people with accessibility knowledge and encourage them to spread the work on the importance of accessibility.
CAE Access Audit courses – For the last 6 years we have partnered with CAE the Centre of Accessible Environment in training local access auditors. As at November 2022 we have 60+ people trained.
Promote the AccessAble Access Guides – commissioned by the States of Guernsey AccessAble audit local venues and produce an online access guide for each
This course is aimed at anyone interested in taking their access knowledge to a higher level and gain an understanding of the practicalities of access improvements in light of the new Discrimination Legislation (approved September 2022, to be enforce October 2023). This course is ideal for anyone considering NRAC accreditation, or looking to develop access auditing skills alongside a practical understanding of implementing access into building management practices.
