Eligibility and Positive Action Schemes

What is a Positive Action Scheme?

A Positive Action Scheme, sometimes referred to as Affirmative Action, is a strategic initiative under the Equality Act 2010 which allows organisations to provide training opportunities to certain groups of the population as long as they can prove that:

  • The opportunity is a training role and not a job
  • That it is targeting a group of the population proven to be under-represented in the sector. For our opportunities, this is usually under-representation in terms of ethnicity, disability, or socio-economic background. Please note, this will be specified on each opportunity.

What is a third-party vacancy?

Third-party vacancies are roles advertised on the Creative Access website where candidates apply directly to the company that is recruiting. These opportunities are open to anyone and everyone to apply.

If you apply for a third-party vacancy, you will be updated on the status of your application from the company directly. In most situations Creative Access cannot provide application support for these roles.

How do you define the term ‘ethnically diverse’?

Creative Access follows the UK Government guidelines about what constitutes an ethnic minority. Follow this link for details on guidelines.

How do you define the term ‘lower socio-economic status’ ?

The categories we use to define socio-economic status are based on the Office for National Statistics guide, plus guidance from Arts Council England. . We ask candidates to register for Creative Access and self-declare a number of factors including eligibility for Free School Meals, accommodation type and whether or not you were the first person in your family to attend university.

How do you define the term disabled?

Under the Equality Act 2010, a disability is defined as a physical or mental impairment that has a ‘substantial’ and ‘long-term’ negative effect on your ability to do normal daily activities.
