Guidance notes for applicants

It is Newham Sixth Form College’s policy to recruit the most suitable person for each vacancy, regardless of the protected characteristics set out in the Equality Act 2010, and as such Newham Sixth Form College is committed to ensuring equal opportunities and fair treatment in the workplace for its entire staff regardless of gender, sexual orientation, transgender status, marital or family status, colour, race, nationality, ethic or national origins, creed, culture, religion or belief, age, disability or any other personal factor or quality.

Our staff recruitment process is designed to select the best candidate for the post. We aim to ensure that no applicant is discriminated against on grounds of race, gender, age, national or ethnic origins, religion, marital or parental status, sexual orientation or disability. The process is therefore conducted in as fair and objective way as possible. This guidance is intended to help you in your application and to explain the recruitment process.

It is important to us that we treat you with courtesy and deal with your application efficiently. We also wish to provide you with sufficient information about the college and the post so that you can decide whether the post is appropriate for you.

If you have a disability that makes it difficult for you to complete the application form, you may provide the same information in a similar word-processed format.
