Equal Opportunities
in the Department for Education (DfE)

The DfE believes that everyone should have an equal opportunity to meet their aspirations, realise their full potential and improve their life chances. Providing that equal opportunity will make for a fairer and more prosperous society. We will work with our partners to ensure our policies and services recognise and respond to the diverse needs of all children, young people and adults, and to ensure that excellent learning experiences are universally available. We will aspire to be an exemplar equal opportunities employer, and create a workplace which values diversity and is free from any form of unfair discrimination. In doing so we will enable the Department to better meet the needs of its *
diverse range of customers and to develop and deliver policies which better meet the needs of the communities we serve. We will monitor our progress to ensure we are succeeding and that we are making a full contribution to building a diverse and inclusive society.
To do this we need to look at
• How we advertise jobs
• How we select people for interview
• Who is offered the post, and
• What we do after a successful interview/appointment
Monitoring the recruitment and selection procedures is one way of helping to ensure that there is no unfair discrimination in the way we recruit/engage people.
