University is an education in the broadest sense. Our University section will enable you to make the most of your time at University and take advantage of all of the opportunities available to you.
Making the most of your time at University
In this section you can find all the advice and guidance you need as you apply for jobs and prepare for interviews.
In the Recruitment section there is a wealth of information about completing applications forms, online tests, and the various stages in the recruitment. Whilst the Disability section provides advice on how to manage your disability during the recruitment process including information on how to inform an employer of what you require and referring to your disability during an interview.
Managing Your Disability
The Organisations section is where you can find out about various organisations, the opportunities they offer and their individual approach to disability.
Profiles / Stories
It’s always great to hear from those who have been successful.
This section profiles many individuals, working across different industries, at various stages of their careers. Their interviews demonstrate that is possible to have a successful career regardless of whether or not you have a disability. They also illustrate the adjustments that can be made in the workplace.
The link between how well you do at school and how much your family earns is stronger in the UK than almost anywhere in the developed world. We’re changing this and you can too.
We believe that inspirational teaching and leadership are vital to helping every child succeed, regardless of their background. We support exceptional people like you to become influential leaders through our Leadership Development Programme (LDP) in schools across England and Wales. During the programme you’ll gain a fully-funded Postgraduate Diploma in Education, worth double the credits of a PGCE, to become a qualified teacher. You’ll also acquire the key skills and personal qualities needed to develop you into an effective leader - someone who can make a real impact. If you can inspire in the classroom, you can bring resilience, efficiency and imagination to any environment, no matter where your career takes you.
We value diversity. Some 10% of the participants in the 2016 cohort of our Leadership Development Programme (LDP) told us they had a disability. The 2016 cohort also graduated from 120 different universities, and 43% of them were first-generation university students. We welcome this diversity and are committed to ensuring our selection process is an inclusive experience for all candidates.
