Description

Recognising the challenges for Government

Providing a great customer experience for people using government websites can be challenging. We understand you may have:

  • A large amount of content on your website
  • A lot of mandatory content, that may not be interesting to read
  • A large and diverse audience, each with unique needs and wants (including accessibility compliance)
  • Multiple web editors who only look after their 'patch'
  • Legacy content dragged through many website redesigns
  • Web writers and editors unskilled in writing for the web environment.

We've developed a course just for Government

This course was developed to train government web content managers, editors and writers in:

  • Website standards and guidelines

  • Understanding the needs of different customer groups including youth, people with low literacy, people with a disability, people who don't speak English as their first language, and seniors

  • How search works and what you can do to improve search results

  • How to think like the reader and write customer-focussed content

  • How to structure and format web pages

  • Creating customer-focussed and accessible links

  • Using images, video and PDFs

  • Editing and proofreading tips and tools.

What our clients say

"Totally excellent course. Everyone who writes for the City website should do it." - City of Melville participant

"Fantastic! I'm already improving my website, especially the accessible ideas." - City of Melville participant

“What I like most about the course and its delivery was the enthusiasm and help of the presenter. Michelle was terrific, providing information in text form to help me because of my hearing disability.” Department of Commerce participant

“So much useful information and a great variety. Even though I have done other web editing/accessibility courses, this has complemented it. I think you managed to cover a huge subject area and if I feel I missed anything I know I can ask. Well done, it was really enjoyable and very well presented.” Department of Mines and Petroleum participant
