The main objective is to promote equality of opportunity for all and to prevent discrimination in respect of all actions performed at or on behalf of work.

WPT is fully committed to the principle of providing equal opportunities in employment, not only because it recognises the basic duty of every employer to treat existing and prospective employees without discrimination, but also because it appreciates the value of actively seeking to eliminate any direct or indirect discriminatory practices which may prevent it from making full use of the skills and aptitudes available within the existing or potential workforce.

All Trust schools ensure that in both access to employment and employment practices, all persons are afforded equal opportunity and that no employee or applicant for appointment, receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of gender, marital status, age, race, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief, or are placed at a disadvantage by imposed conditions or requirements which cannot be justified.

The Trust is committed to promoting good employment practices in respect of all current and prospective employees and will strive to guard against any activities or actions which disadvantage any sections of the community.
