Candidates with disabilities or other requirements

If you have any individual circumstances that you believe may affect your performance or attendance at the selection process, you should in the first instance refer to the Reasonable Adjustment and Accommodation Policy. This details the process by which candidates with a disability, including a Specific Learning Difficulty (SpLD), or any other influencing factors may apply for reasonable adjustment or an accommodation of their needs. If, after reading the policy, you have any queries regarding your situation, please contact the Senior Selection Team to arrange to discuss your circumstances with one of the team's Psychologists. Please do this as soon as possible after securing a place at the Assessment Centre, so that we can try to assist and put any necessary adjustments or accommodations in place for you.
