Safeguarding Statement:

As part of our safeguarding & prevent commitment, appointment to any post is subject to receipt of a satisfactory Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) disclosure.

Disability Statement:
The organisation encourages the development of an environment in which diversity is valued. An important part of putting this into practice is a commitment to prohibit discrimination on the grounds of disability in all employment matters, to increase employment opportunities for people who have a disability and to ensure that its recruitment and selection processes are fully accessible.

The ideal of accessibility underpins this Statement and includes not only access to the built environment, but also to information and services. Furthermore, it means independent access, or, at least, access with minimal assistance. An important step towards becoming more welcoming to people with disabilities is understanding that services, methods of working and the built environment may themselves be enabling or disabling.

All Organisation staff, students, visitors and contractors are expected to treat people with disabilities with respect.

Discrimination in recruitment, selection or employment is treated seriously by the Organisation and could provide grounds for disciplinary action. Furthermore, individuals who discriminate on the grounds of disability may be liable under the Equality Act 2010.
