Awareness Training

This is where we show links to organisations who offer awareness training - both online and classroom based.

AccessChamp

If you want a one stop solution for your Accessibility training needs then AccessChamp is your answer. We can provide online and face to face training, an e-learning programme, coffee time training chats, mystery guest visits and access audits. The MD of AccessChamp is Arnold Fewell, a former hotelier and now a permanent wheelchair user. This gives him the unique perspective of seeing accessibility from both sides. We believe that every hotel should have one person to lead on the Accessibility Agenda and that they should then cascade training throughout the business to give the most cost effective solutions to gaining your share of a £12 billion market. AccessChamp is delighted to be working in partnership with AA Hospitality Services.

Access New Business

Access New Business is a group of experienced accessible tourism and travel professionals based in the UK and Europe. We work with government forums, trade associations, consumer affairs panels, charities, hotels, B&Bs, attractions, national and regional tourist offices, town centre managers and destinations.

Between us we can provide full accessibility services to businesses across the tourism sector including: information provision, practical advice on physical access, site visits, staff training and all elements that go to making a business more welcoming for all.

One of our team recently ran a disability awareness training day for a global events company. They wanted to ensure that their staff could anticipate what disabled people might require when they were attending an event, either as presenters or as delegates. From feedback, the training day was well received by all who attended.
