A new way for developers, designers, and content practitioners to learn how to make web services that people with disability love to use.

Learn from the world’s leading authority

Most people who build web services are already familiar with WCAG, the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.

WCAG is developed and maintained by WAI – The Web Accessibility Initiative.

‘Accessibility pathways’ uses WAI’s own ‘curricula on accessibility’ to teach core and specialist concepts in web accessibility. This learning goes beyond WCAG conformance by incorporating the experiences of all kinds of disabled people and giving learners new ways to think about disability itself.

Learn on Australia’s most innovative learning platform

Mentem is an initiative from UNSW. It combines an evidence-based learning process with an employee insights platform to create some of the most dynamic and engaging learning in Australia today – and all at the rigorous standards set by UNSW.

Mentem’s mission is to upskill or reskill 500,000 workers by 2030.

By combining self-paced, social, and work-integrated learning, Mentem delivers learning that changes people – and organisations.

‘Accessibility pathways’ is a joint initiative between Mentem and Great Question Training.
