Accessibility Skills Gap

Accessibility Skills Gap

Teach Access is creating a new Accessibility Skills Gap Report and we need your help! We were inspired by a 2018 report released by the Partnership on Employment and Accessible Technology (PEAT). A lot has happened since 2018, and we want to know where gaps exist in 2022. We updated the questions and data so that the new report will accurately reflect the accessibility skills that currently exist within the workforce, measure changes since 2018, and highlight new focus areas that can help us all improve.

Teach Access has updated the questions and is distributing them again to capture an understanding of the current state of accessibility skills within the workforce, and to measure changes to the accessible technology skills gap.

What will happen to the survey data?

We will analyze the data and expect to publicly share our findings during spring 2023. The updated data will provide evidence of the continued demand for accessibility skills and the need for education to address shortcomings in the supplying accessibility skills staff. With that information, Teach Access and partner organizations will be able to build out updated programs and outreach efforts aimed at increasing coverage of accessibility in education and professional development programs.
