The University is a disability confident employer
Learning & Organisational Development are pleased to announce that the University has achieved Level 2 of the Disability Confident Grading Scheme and we are now accredited with ‘Disability Confident Employer’.
Through Disability Confident, we will work to ensure that disabled people and those with long-term health conditions have the opportunities to fulfil their potential and realise their aspirations. Recognition of this scheme will help us to recruit and retain from the widest possible pool of talent and help develop our valuable skills and experience.
As a Level 2 Disability Confident Employer we have committed to all elements of Level 1 and also commit to :
getting the right people for our business
keeping and developing our people
Disability Confident Employers are recognised as going the extra mile to make sure disabled people get a fair chance.
The Certification is valid for 2 years and we can now display the Disability Confident Employer badge on University stationery, correspondence and websites.
Please review where and how you can use this badge within your own processes.
Over the next 2 years we will continue to review the criteria for the level 2 certification ‘Disability Confident Employer’ to improve services and the experience for all employees. We will also review the next level of the Disability confident scheme ‘Disability Confident Leader’ and understand requirements to move forward.
