Acting on disability

At a CVCP seminar on disability and employment chief executive Diana Warwick said universities should act as exemplars. “Students are the employees and employers of the future,” she said. “Their experience of higher education and their perception of employment conditions will influence what they accept and the standards they set in the future.” David Triesman of the AUT said “recruitment practices and the provision of working conditions in higher education enable disabled staff to apply for posts with confidence and to work with them in a culture of equality.”
