HEBDOMADAL COUNCIL


1 Decree

Council has made the following decree, to come into
effect on 20 June.


Decree (1): Equal Opportunities
Policy and Code of Practice

Explanatory note

The employment provisions of the Disability
Discrimination Act 1995 came into force on 2 December
1996. Under those provisions, it is illegal to
discriminate `unjustifiably' against disabled people in
employment. There is also a requirement in the Act that
employers make `reasonable adjustments' by removing
physical barriers and modifying their practices to enable
a disabled person who is suitably qualified and
experienced for a particular post to be employed. The
University's current Equal Opportunity Policy Statement
(Statutes, 1995, p. 506) does not contain an
express commitment not to treat an applicant or member of
staff less favourably because of his or her disability.
The first sentence of the current policy statement makes
clear that candidates will be selected on the basis of
their ability to do the job; and the first phrase of the
second sentence mentions the constraints of statutory
provisions. Given these provisos, and the provisions of
the new legislation, Council, on the recommendation of
the committees most concerned (the Appointments Committee
of the General Board, the Staff Committee, the Equal
Opportunities Committee, and the Committee for Disabled
People) and with the concurrence of the General Board,
has made the following decree, which amends the existing
policy statement and code of practice in order to
indicate the University's commitment to equality of
opportunity for people with disabilities. The decree has
been drafted so as to set out the complete policy
statement and code of practice in their revised form, for
ease of reference. The inserted passages are indicated by
the use of italics. (Roman type will be used throughout
when in due course the document is republished in the
next edition of Statutes.)

`APPENDIX A TO CHAPTER VII

Equal Opportunity Policy and Code
of Practice

I. INTRODUCTION

Statutory obligations

The Sex Discrimination Act 1975 and the Race Relations
Act 1976 proscribe discrimination in, among others, the
spheres of employment and education, on grounds of sex
and marriage (in the case of the former Act) and on
racial grounds

(in the case of the latter Act).
[Racial grounds are the grounds of colour, race,
nationality—including citizenship—or ethnic or
national origins, and groups defined by reference to
these grounds are referred to as racial groups.]
According to the Acts, there is direct discrimination
where an individual, on the grounds of his or her sex or
racial group, is treated less favourably than a member of
the other sex or someone of a different racial group
would be treated; there is indirect discrimination where
a requirement or condition is applied (i) which is such
that a considerably smaller proportion of persons of one
sex or of the same racial group can comply with it than
the proportion of persons of the other sex or not of that
racial group who can comply; and (ii) which cannot be
shown to be justifiable irrespective of the sex, colour,
race, nationality, or ethnic or national origins of the
person to whom it is applied; and (iii) which is to the
detriment of the person concerned because he or she
cannot comply with it. An example of indirect
discrimination on grounds of sex might be a rule that
applicants must be under a specified age (see below). An
example of such discrimination on racial grounds might be
a rule that candidates must have a British or European
degree.

It is also unlawful for an individual to be victimised
for having brought proceedings under the Acts, or for
giving evidence or information relating to such
proceedings, or for alleging that discrimination has
occurred.

The Equal Opportunities Commission and the Commission
for Racial Equality, set up by the Acts to work towards
the elimination of discrimination and to promote equality
of opportunity, have both produced codes of practice on
equal opportunities in employment which have been
endorsed by Parliament. The codes do not have the force
of law, but they can be brought in evidence in industrial
tribunals. The University's code of practice, which is
set out at III below, is consistent with these codes.

The Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (DDA)
introduced measures to prevent discrimination against
disabled people in employment, in the provision of goods
and services, and in buying and renting land and
property. The DDA also requires higher education
institutions regularly to publish information about
education provisions for people with disabilities at
their institutions. The DDA defines a disabled person as
a person with `a physical or mental impairment which has
a substantial and long-term adverse effect on their
ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities'. A
National Disability Council (NDC) was created under the
DDA. Unlike the Equal Opportunities Commission and the
Commission for Racial Equality, the NDC has an advisory
role only and has no powers to enforce the legislation.
Guidelines on the implementation of the DDA have been
issued by the Government, and the code of practice below
is consistent with these guidelines.

II. POLICY STATEMENT

The policy and practice of the University of Oxford
require that entry into employment with the University
and progression within employment will be determined only
by personal merit and the application of criteria which
are related to the duties of each particular post and the
relevant salary structure. Subject to statutory
provisions, no applicant or member of staff will be
treated less favourably than another because of his or
her sex, marital status, racial group, or
disability. In all cases, ability to perform the job will
be the primary consideration
.

Return to List of Contents of this
section


III. CODE OF PRACTICE

The University seeks to ensure that all candidates for
employment are treated fairly, and that selection is
based solely on the individual merits of candidates and
on selection criteria relevant to the post. In pursuance
of this aim and of its statutory duties, the University
of Oxford, as an employer committed to the principle of
equality of opportunity, will adhere to the following
procedure in the conduct of the recruitment and selection
process for all posts.

Return to List of Contents of this
section


1. Selection criteria

Selection criteria for all posts will be clearly defined
and reflected in the further particulars sent to
candidates, which will also include details of the
University's commitment to equality of opportunity. Job
qualifications or requirements which would have the
effect of inhibiting applications from members of one
sex, from persons of a particular marital status, from
persons of a particular racial group, or from those
with a disability
will not be demanded or imposed
except where they are justifiable in terms of the job to
be done. (For the purposes of this code, `racial group'
means a group of persons defined by reference to colour,
race, nationality, or ethnic or national origins.) An
age limit which is convenient as opposed to genuinely
necessary could constitute unlawful indirect
discrimination against some classes of candidate (such as
women who have taken time out of employment for
child-rearing). Accordingly age limits will not be
imposed unless they can be shown to be necessary for the
job to be done.

Return to List of Contents of this
section


2. Advertising

Job advertisements will state the University's commitment
to the principle of equality of opportunity, and will be
widely publicised so as to encourage applications from a
broad range of suitable candidates from all backgrounds.
All job advertisements placed on behalf of the University
will include a footnote or final note indicating the
University's commitment to equality of opportunity. In
addition, where further particulars are prepared they
should quote in full the University's Equal Opportunities
Policy Statement and make reference to the University's
maternity leave provisions and the availability of the
university nursery. Further particulars should also
be made available in large print, tape, or other formats
when they are requested by disabled applicants
.

Return to List of Contents of this
section


3. Selection methods

All those handling applications and conducting interviews
must be aware of the principles of the Sex Discrimination
Act, the Race Relations Act, the Disability
Discrimination Act
, and other relevant
legislation. The University will ensure that training and
advice are available in furtherance of this requirement.
All candidates will be compared objectively with the
selection criteria, and all applications will be
processed in the same way. Information sought from
candidates and passed to those responsible for
appointments will relate only to the qualifications for
or requirements of the job. It is recognised that
the University has a statutory obligation to make such
adjustments to the workplace and to working arrangements
as are reasonable to accommodate suitably qualified
disabled applicants
.

Return to List of Contents of this
section


4. Interviews

Wherever suitably qualified persons are available, there
will be at least one member of each sex on the bodies
responsible for shortlisting, interviewing, and making or
recommending an appointment. Interview questions will
relate to the selection criteria. No questions will be
based on assumptions about roles in the home and the
family, or the assumed suitability of different ethnic
groups for the post in question. In particular, questions
about marital status, children, domestic obligations,
marriage plans, or family intentions will not be asked at
interview. Questions about a candidate's ability to `fit
in' with colleagues may also be construed as unlawful
discrimination. Where it is necessary to obtain
information on personal circumstances (for example, in
relation to a selection criterion such as flexibility to
work irregular hours) or on whether a candidate will be
able to work well with colleagues, questions about this
will be asked equally of all candidates and, like other
questions, will relate only to the job requirements.
In the case of disabled applicants who identify
themselves at the application stage, appropriate
interview arrangements (such as accessible interview
rooms or the assistance of a sign interpreter) should be
offered to enable candidates to compete on an equal
basis
.

Return to List of Contents of this
section


5. Record-keeping

Details of candidates and of selection decisions will be
kept for at least six months after an appointment has
been made, in case they are required as evidence by an
industrial tribunal or for other proceedings. The
University will keep records of the sex of all candidates
and of those shortlisted and appointed. The composition
of selection panels will also be monitored. In addition,
the University will investigate the practicalities of
extending its system of monitoring recruitment (for
example, covering such categories as marital status,
ethnic origin, and any disability). (Records may be used
to determine whether members of one sex or persons of a
certain racial group or those with a
disability
do not apply for employment, or apply
in smaller numbers than might be expected, or are
shortlisted or appointed in a lower proportion than their
application rate, or are concentrated in certain jobs,
faculties, or sub-faculties.)

Return to List of Contents of this
section


6. Review of recruitment practice

Recruitment procedures and practices will be kept under
review so as to ensure that this code is being adhered
to. The University's Equal Opportunities Officer has
responsibility for advising on the operation of this code
and for the distribution to those involved in the
recruitment and selection processes of information about
the Sex Discrimination Act, the Race Relations Act, the
Disability Discrimination Act, and other
relevant legislation.

Council shall have power to make changes in this code by
decree from time to time, under the provisions of Tit.
IV, Sect. I, cl. 2.'

OXFORD UNIVERSITY LANGUAGE
CENTRE


Courses for those taking part
in international conferences and professional meetings in
French, German, Greek, Italian, or Russian

The University Language Centre is offering one-week ten-
hour intensive courses for those planning to attend an
international gathering in the near future in a country
where other participants will be speaking French, German,
Greek, Italian, or Russian. The courses are intended to
enable participants to `brush up' their language skills.

The courses, in all five languages, will be held in
Week 9 of Trinity Term (23–7 June). Classes will be
held daily, 9.15--11.15 a.m., in the Language Centre. The
courses are not intended for beginners.

The courses will make extensive use of role-play,
group work, and video, and will focus on communication
skills involved in such areas as: travelling; making
social contacts; plenary sessions; papers and
presentations; working groups and seminars.

Each class will be limited to twelve places and
enrolment will be strictly on a first-come, first-served
basis. The fee for each course will be £55 for
students, £65 for senior members of the
University and staff of colleges, teaching hospitals, and
the University Press, and £75 for participants who
are not members of the University.

Those wishing to enrol for a course should contact
Angela Pinkney at the Language Centre Reception desk
(telephone: (2)83360, fax: (2)83366, e-mail:
admin@lang.ox.ac.uk). Full details are also available on
the Language Centre's Internet site at
http://users.ox.ac.uk/~apink/week9.htm.

The Language Centre reserves the right not to hold a
course should fewer than six people register for it.

DEPARTMENT FOR CONTINUING
EDUCATION

The Department for Continuing Education exists to make
the University accessible to men and women in ways which
complement the University's provision for its resident
members. Each year the department mounts several hundred
courses, either part-time or short full-time, covering
most subjects taught within the University (except
management and clinical medicine). Courses last anything
from one day to ten weeks (full time), and between ten
weeks and two years on a part-time basis. During recent
sessions about 11,000 students have enrolled annually for
the department's courses, the average length of study
being twenty hours.

Apart from a large number of individual members of
the University who offer courses or give lectures, the
Department for Continuing Education works in co-operation
with an increasing number of other departments and
faculties throughout the University. It welcomes
expressions of interest from individuals and departments
who wish to become involved in or to explore continuing
education activities.

The department's main provision is organised through
three programme offices (see below), each of which is
able to provide more detailed information on current and
forthcoming activities. In addition, the Kellogg
Residential Centre, when not being used for courses, can
occasionally be made available for conferences and other
residential meetings.

The Public Programmes Office

This office (Director: Mr R.T. Rowley) offers to the
public a wide range of study opportunities in most
academic disciplines through part-time day, evening, and
short residential courses. Although most programmes have
open entry and require no formal entry qualifications, an
increasing number are award-bearing, at access,
undergraduate, or postgraduate level, and many of these
call for evidence of suitable entry requirements. During
the summer the department offers one-week residential
study opportunities, mainly for domestic students,
through the Oxford University Summer School for Adults
based at Rewley House, and the Oxford Experience, based
at Christ Church. A range of study tours is also
available to various parts of Europe and further afield.
The department also runs the Rewley House Film Theatre on
Sunday evenings during term. Individuals interested in
offering courses or in contributing to other programmes
are invited to contact the office.

Details of all courses are publicised in annual
prospectuses, or are available at any time from the
department (telephone: (2)70312).

The Continuing Professional Development Office

Short and extended courses

This office (Director: Mr P.G. Combey) draws on
departments and faculties throughout the University to
offer courses designed to meet the needs of individuals
and groups drawn from industry, the professions,
commerce, and academia. Courses vary from one- or two-
day intensive updating courses based on the latest
academic research, to longer courses enabling
professionals to review advances in specialised fields,
and acquire new areas of expertise and additional
qualifications. Areas covered include engineering, law,
information technology and computing, mathematics and
statistics, education, biomedical science, and social
studies. Contributors to courses include Oxford academics
and research staff, and experts from other universities
and organisations in the UK and abroad.

Conferences/Seminars/Workshops

The CPD Office is also able to offer a conference
organisation and management service to colleagues within
the University and other organisations. The CPD Office
has specialist skills in running national and
international meetings, and more than fifteen years'
collective experience of organising and managing
conferences, seminars, and training courses for up to 500
delegates. The Centre provides a `total conference
package' which combines the best of personal service with
the highest professional standards.

Services offered include the following:

  • Conference planning and academic support
  • Budget preparation and account management
  • Venue sourcing, including residential accommodation,
    lecture theatres, hotels, and catering support
  • Organisation of exhibitions and displays, design and
    provision of publicity
  • Promotion/advertising/marketing support
  • Mailing; compilation of databases
  • Sourcing possible sponsorship
  • Organisation of social programmes, excursions and
    tours
  • Translation and interpretation services, technical
    and audio- visual support
  • Pre-registration management and on-site registration
    services, preparation of pre-prints, binders, badges
  • Post-conference reports and proceedings

The International Programmes Office

This office (Director: Dr A. Hawkins) offers a wide range
of courses to undergraduates, graduates, and continuing
education students from around the world. These courses
include year-long full-time programmes for Japanese
graduates and diplomats from the Republic of China,
Taiwan, as well as a large number of three- or four-week
courses held during the summer for students from Europe
and North America. Programmes are held in partnership
with institutions such as the Smithsonian Institution,
the University of California at Berkeley, Duke
University, the University of Virginia, and Northwestern
University in America. International Programmes also
works with the British Council, the European Commission,
and the ODA, as well as offering courses in partnership
with the Bodleian Library and many other colleges and
departments within the University. Subjects covered in
these courses include topics from law and industrial
relations through to archaeology, art history, and the
physical and biological sciences. Tutors are drawn from
Oxford academic and research staff, and expertise is also
recruited from outside the University. Programmes vary in
size from small groups of twenty students to larger
programmes of over 200 participants. During the summer
many residential International Programmes, including the
Oxford University Summer Programmes in English Literature
and in History, Politics, and Society, are held in
colleges throughout Oxford, in addition to those held at
the Rewley House Residential Centre. Over the next few
years the range of courses offered by the International
Programmes Office will be expanded, drawing in more
students from Europe, Japan, other countries in the Far
East, and from elsewhere around the world.

As the work of the International Programmes Office
expands, approaches would be welcomed from those
colleges, departments, and other institutions which have
accommodation from which they would like to generate
further income or from individuals with suitable
qualifications interested in teaching on international
programmes. Telephone: (2)70456.

Enquiries should be directed to the numbers
given above. General enquiries may be directed to the
Director of the Department (Dr G.P. Thomas), at the
Department for Continuing Education, 1 Wellington Square,
Oxford OX1 2JA.

The Chairman of the Curators of the Schools would be grateful if
Professors, Readers, and University Lecturers who wish to lecture
