Brands Get Disability Training Wrong.

Trainers without lived experience or acquired knowledge of Disability trying to educate others on what it means to be Disabled.

Inaccessible training content which only creates barriers leading to exclusion.

A medical model view of Disability teaches that Disabled People are a problem to be fixed. And a failure to educate beyond workplace adjustments/accommodations or legal responsibilities.

I partner with Brands to design and deliver bespoke training, emphasizing the social model of Disability.

This means a human-centric holistic learning experience that goes beyond the failed teachings of the past. Training delivered by an actual Disabled Person with a passion for partnering with Brands to unlearn ableism, take accountability for accessibility, and fostering inclusive accessible change.

  • “Jamie is a brilliant trainer and this course is informative and engaging, with the added bonus of some humour along the way. Do yourself a favour, and join the Accessible Herd” Tracey Young - Kubrick Group
  • “What a great session it was! Jamie Shields you were a revelation - lots of great content shared. I feel much more confident now in how to make SWAD communications as accessible as possible. You have a knack for clarity, and a gift for illustration. Personally, I think your training would benefit every sector who has social media/visual content. I might be being a bit cheeky here, but I reckon your training should be a required part of every social media and 
PR/Marketing course in the UK”, Lorraine Stanley - SWAD
