What are we doing to improve digital accessibility at City?
Public sector bodies are legally required to make their websites, mobile applications and other digital content accessible, or outline in accessibility statements how they are working towards compliance. In line with our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion strategy, we have:
- Committed to designing accessible services, regularly checking accessibility against standards and offering alternative formats.
- Established a Digital Accessibility Working Group in 2020 which brings together staff and students at City to work on a range of improvement projects.
- Launched a staff and student development programme focused on raising our awareness of digital accessibility and developing our skills, e.g. how to create accessible documents.

Explore our guides on Digital Accessibility
We offer student and study focused guides on Digital Accessibility. Here, you can explore how to create, design, and structure your content to ensure that it is accessible to everyone, as well as use tools to create your own alternative formats.
Our staff educational technology focused guides on Digital Accessibility include how to create, design, and structure learning resources to ensure that they are accessible to students.
Staff and enrolled students at City are invited to take our e-learning module, an Introduction to Accessibility.
The module illustrates disabled student experiences and provides you with digitally inclusive skills and strategies to help create an inclusive learning environment for everyone.
