Equal Opportunities Monitoring Form

The policy and practice of the College requires that entry into employment and progression within employment will be determined only by personal merit and the application of criteria which are related to the duties of each particular post. Subject to statutory provisions, no applicant or member of staff will be treated less favourably than another because of their sex, sexual orientation, ethnicity, age, religion or belief, gender reassignment, pregnancy or maternity, nationality or disability. In all cases, ability to perform the job will be the primary consideration. Any information given will be used to support the equal opportunities policy and processed in accordance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation, UK data protection legislation and the College’s data protection policy. The information will be kept strictly confidential and separate from your name. It is not part of the selection process and will not be seen by any member of the selection panel.

This information you give will be retained only for statistical purposes and will not be linked to your name. Completion of this form is voluntary and anonymous.
