Make a panel within a panel. Make a large panel to cover the back and in the center of that panel make a smaller panel that pulls out to access behind.

The person training you has never heard of snaps??? Snaps are a fundamental part of upholstery.

As stated above, make the main panel, cut a nice rounded rectangular hole in the center, then make a panel to cover that hole that snaps into place. Snaps will push the second panel 1/4" away from the base panel when its snapped in place. Cover the base panel with 1/4" closed cell foam. Screw the snaps into the panel, and allow the snaps to fully compress the foam. Now when snapped in place, the cover panel fits snugly against the base panel, with no gap at all.
