The School is committed to a policy of equal opportunities. As part of the equal opportunities
policy we treat job applicants and members of staff in the same way regardless of their sex,
marital status, age, race, colour, religion, ethnic or national origin or disability. All members of
staff are requested to co-operate to ensure that the policy is implemented in full.
All job applicants will be asked to complete a form giving details of their sex, age, ethnic origin
and any disabilities. The School guarantees that this form will be used for the purpose of
monitoring the effectiveness of its equal opportunities policy only.
Managing Staff Problems Fairly
A. Disabled Persons
Where a disabled person applies for a post or a member of staff becomes disabled the School
will make reasonable adjustments to remove the disadvantages faced by the disabled person.
Any member of staff who discriminates against or harasses any other members of staff on the
grounds of race, sex or disability will be subject to the School’s disciplinary procedures. Such
behaviour may well constitute gross misconduct and could result in summary dismissal.
Any employee who believes he or she has received less favourable treatment on grounds of
age, sex, race, disability is asked to use the grievance procedure.
Sexual, age, racial or disability harassment is unlawful discrimination and improper and
unacceptable behaviour. Any employee who feels that they have suffered harassment should
raise the matter with the Headmaster for teaching staff, or with the Bursar for non-teaching
staff. All complaints will be dealt with promptly, confidentially and impartially.
Llandovery College is an equal opportunities institution. The aim of the policy is to ensure that
no job applicant, student or employee receives less favourable treatment on grounds of sex,
race, age, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origins, marital status, sexual orientation,
family responsibility, and trade union activity, and disability, political or religious belief.
Selection criteria and procedure will be kept under review to ensure that individuals are
selected, promoted and treated on the basis of their relevant merits and abilities. Applications
from persons with disabilities who have the necessary attributes are welcomed. All employees
will be given equal opportunity and, where appropriate, training to progress within the
organisation. The School is committed to a programme of action to make this policy fully
effective for all who study and work in the institution.
In order to achieve this, Llandovery College is continuously monitoring the implementation and
effectiveness of its Equal Opportunity Policy. The information requested is for statistical
purposes only and will not be used for the purpose of short listing.
