Lunchtime talk – Accessible Learning Toolkit

The first remote lunchtime talk from the Archives for Learning and Education Section for 2022 will take place in February, and is being given by Sarah Wickham, a freelance consultant with over 25 years’ experience working in archives and records management roles, in engagement and leadership.  

Sarah was delighted to be commissioned by ALES to bring the Accessible Learning Toolkit to completion and to support the wider sector to become more ‘SEND-friendly’. The toolkit aims to equip you with information, ideas, tools and language to take practical and proportionate steps to increase accessibility and improve the inclusion of children and young people with SEND in archives. 

Her talk, ‘Practical steps to becoming a (more) accessible service – introducing the accessible learning toolkit’, will be held using Microsoft Teams at 1pm on Monday 28 February 2022. Afterwards, there will be the opportunity for questions and discussion with the speaker.  

The event is free to attend for ARA members, and £10.00 for non-members. To book a place, please go to via eventbrite by Monday 21 February 2022. Information on how to join will be sent to attendees ahead of the event. 

Best wishes,

ALES Committee
