Ofqual and QCA are committed to embedding equality into everything we do and demonstrating best practice in all our work. Diversity in the workplace and excellence in education for all, are our guiding principles. We promote flexible working and welcome applications from all sections of the community.
The overarching equality aims for QCA and Ofqual is contained in our Single Equality Scheme which sets out how we promote equality, across the six strand areas of ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation, religion/belief and age, in all our work. The scheme contains the equality action plans for the divisions within QCA, including Ofqual. For more information on the scheme and QCA's progress in promoting and supporting equalities in the workplace, please visit the diversity page on QCA’s website.
QCA is proud to be accredited as a disability symbol user. The disability symbol is awarded by Job Centre Plus to employers who meet five commitments regarding the recruitment, employment, retention and career development of disabled people.
As part of this commitment, QCA will guarantee an interview to all disabled applicants who meet the essential criteria for the job and consider them on their abilities. The essential criteria are shown on the person specification section of the job description/role profile for the job vacancy.
