AEMA network launches accreditation process for adult education providers

A new accreditation process enables adult education providers to monitor and make visible their improvements in accessibility.

The accreditation process gives adult education professionals the tools to publish their improvements in accessibility on the AEMA portal and on their own website. The adult education providers will be able to show their success in form of a badge so that students with disabilities can see it.

Adult education providers can join the process by registering on the AEMA website and filling in the self-assessment for its organisation.

All adult education providers that conduct the accreditation have to document their accreditation process with a development plan and send it to their national Accessibility Check Point (contact the project partners). In close cooperation with the external Accessibility Experts, who are a part of the National Trust Networks, the Accessibility Check Points will carefully assess the evidence provided, and consult with individual accessibility experts where needed.

In the process, the adult education providers will receive badges in an electronic format and will be able to display them strategically on their websites so that potential customers with disabilities will notice them.

The accreditation will be offered to adult education providers free of charge until the end of the year.
