Good question, we design a lot of blended learning solutions, and for us accessibility is something we are constantly keeping front of mind.
Whilst accessibility standards often are associated with digital content (eLearning, video, webpages etc) accessibility should be taken into account for every piece of learning content.
We tend to look at it on two levels. Firstly what do people with different physical or mental needs require, so that is around the right colours, font sizes, considering whether the use of subtitles would be right for the audience, as well as logistical needs for live events, e.g is the venue accessible. This is where understanding how to translate the standards help. That is non negotiable, it is our first quality check really.
Then, where it makes sense we ask our selves what else could we do to make this even more accessible (and engaging).
We firmly believe that blended learning solutions really do help to provide accessible options as it enables us to provide more choice.
You can have content in more than one format, which gives learners options to pick and choose to suit their own needs.
We would be happy to work with your team to help them understand the key requirement, do you want to drop me an email and we can arrange a chat?Stephanie

Very good question, I too have been hearing a lot of people debunking learning styles. At the end of the day, I don't think I ever saw it as set in stone anyway. The key thing for me is that everyone is different and what they want and how they learn changes for different needs and in different circumstances. Clive's answer is particularly interesting, thanks Clive

We only use freelance associates, and feel that is a win win, they only work on projects that they are interested in and we have a wide and diverse team that can meet the needs of our customers, we still have KPI's , many of our team have been with us for many, many years now. From a commercial perspective it is useful not to have a fixed overhead, plus we can scale up or down the design and delivery teams as we need to.
I also feel we get added value from freelance associates as they work with different clients and bring that additional knowledge back to our clients.
Many of our consultants are also really good at managing their well being, so they don't get burnt out. They can do this because they can pick and choose when and where they work which internal teams can't. Great question
