Assessment
CONFIDENTIAL FOR OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH USE ONLY
Your answers to this questionnaire will be confidential to Occupational Health and will not be disclosed to anyone
without your permission.
The purpose of this assessment is to help determine if you have any health problems or disabilities which may affect
your capability to fulfil the criteria required for teaching and teacher training. It involves consideration of the potential
for duties to affect any existing health condition or disability you may have as well as such conditions on your ability to
undertake teacher training and duties safely and effectively.
We may recommend adjustments or assistance as a result of this assessment to enable you to meet these criteria.
Appropriate advice, in general terms, will be supplied to the Centre for Professional Education (for PGCE offer holders)
or the Centre for Lifelong Learning (for PGDE offer holders on your suitability for your course.
Before health clearance is given you may be contacted by Occupational Health for further clarification and may need to
be seen by an Occupational Health Advisor and/or Physician.
Please help us to assist you by completing the questionnaire as fully as possible and signing where indicated.

5. The Equality Act makes it unlawful to knowingly discriminate against disabled persons in connection with
employment. A person has a disability for the purposes of the law if they have 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.
This includes ‘hidden’ disabilities such as Diabetes and Epilepsy which may be well controlled on treatment and
therefore symptom less, but if left untreated would have a substantial and long-term adverse effect. It also
includes progressive illnesses such as Cancer, HIV and Multiple Sclerosis, from the day of diagnosis onwards.
A "disabled person" means a person who has a disability as defined above. Long term means 12 months or
more.
To comply with the law, the Institute of Education need to know if you consider yourself to have a disability.
Do you have a disability as defined above?
YES
NO
