Peer Allyship: Build Up Your Student Access Team
Are you depending on external vendors for in-person accessibility services?
We can work with your Disability/SEN office or faculties to set up a student access team for sustainability, and to shed off dependency on external vendors (even us!). This student team will then be able to provide access services to your Deaf and Hard of Hearing students, students with vision loss, as well as to assist faculty members in making their materials accessible.
How we can work with you:
1. Training of your student access workers. Skills include notetaking, audio description, document conversion to accessible formats.
2. Providing on-the-job mentorship to student trainees while they carry out their allocated roles
3. Setting up a process and system of recruitment, matching and coordination for student access workers
