Accessible Communications Training
Current Global’s hands-on accessible communications training is designed for PR and communications professionals looking to upskill themselves and their teams to be better equipped to deliver disability inclusive and accessible communications. We partnered with a learning and development specialist and consulted with partners and clients to develop this course.
As a valuable and customizable consulting offer, Current Global can tailor exercises and examples to ensure relevancy to specific clients and industries. Led by two of our accessibility champions, the training is hosted remotely via Teams and can support 10-15 attendees per workshop.
