Information for Disabled Applicants

Blackpool and The Fylde College is committed to increasing the number people with disabilities we employ. We are proud to have been awarded Positive about Disabled People and Disability Confident symbols. Disability awareness forms an integral part of our equal opportunities and diversity policies and practices.

As an applicant for a vacancy at Blackpool and The Fylde College, you can be assured that your application will be considered based on your abilities, irrespective of any disability you may have. Selection for interview is based on the closeness of fit between your skills and experience and the criteria listed in the job specification.

If a disabled applicant meets all the essential criteria detailed in the job specification, they will be shortlisted for interview. The shortlisting panel does not have access to information regarding your disability as this is detached upon receipt.
