Policy Statement

The College is committed to working towards equality of opportunity in its employment policies and practices.
The overall aims are to:

  • Give priority status within the application of the policy to issues related to women, black and minority ethnic groups and people with disabilities;
  • Ensure that no job applicant or employee receives less favourable treatment than another - through the application of any College policy or other practice - on grounds of age, disability, gender, marital status, race, religious belief, religious practice or sexual orientation;
  • Ensure that no applicant or employee is unfairly disadvantaged by factors that are not occupationally or otherwise relevant to the requirements of the post and objectives of the College.
  • Ensure that disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for a job vacancy are offered an interview and consider them on their abilities

However, the College recognises that there may be genuine occupational requirements that have a disproportionate effect on the priority groups referred to in this policy. Therefore the College commits itself to:

  • The development and implementation of programmes of positive action that are both permissible within the law and assist us in combating the traditional under-representation of the priority groups.
