Disability Support for Job Applicans
Trinity Laban wishes to ensure that all job applicants have a fair opportunity to show their abilities in the selection process, so that our decisions are based on your ability to do the job and not on any factor that is irrelevant to the post. Please contact [email protected] or 020 8305 4374 or 020 8305 9476 if you require any special arrangements to be made to ensure that you can participate fully in the recruitment and selection process, on account of a disability, and what those adjustments may be.
If you have difficulties accessing any of the electronic documents please contact us at [email protected], we can provide information in a range of formats in order to facilitate access. The job details information for each vacancy includes contact details for the relevant member of the Human Resources Team.
The Accessibility of Our Buildings
The Conservatoire consists of five buildings on four individual sites: the Laban Building (Faculty of Dance) and the Cottages are at Creekside (SE8); King Charles Court (Faculty of Music) is within the Old Royal Naval College at Greenwich (SE10), part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site; the Old Laban Centre at New Cross (SE14); and Blackheath Halls, a Victorian Music Hall at Blackheath (SE3). The two main buildings are close to accessible transport routes.
Street accessibility to the Reception point at all buildings is relatively straight forward, without steps, and with ramp access where necessary.
Each building provides good accessible toilet facilities, however, individually the buildings are very different and internal accessibility differs;
The Laban Building: Completed in 2002 to very high standards, including compliance with Part M (Access to and use of buildings) it was awarded the Stirling Prize for architecture. All teaching and learning levels have full accessible by either ramped wide corridors or lifts.
King Charles Court: With original architecture by Sir Christopher Wren and built in stages between 1642 and 1814, this iconic building has undergone many changes in use and suffered severe bomb and fire damage in its time. Being a Grade 1* listed building with Ancient Monument status, it is challenging to apply modern accessibility standards, however, wherever possible this has been achieved and further improvements to internal accessibility are currently being taken forward through English Heritage and The Department of Culture, Media and Sport. All key areas and facilities have step-free access, and many others areas are accessible via the use of portable ramps.
The Cottages: Have full accessibility to all levels and step free access to the rooms (Ground and First floor).
Old Laban Centre: There are six studios and a newly modernised theatre complex on this site. All but two studios have full accessibility.
Using Public Transport
Transport for London has a range of information about step-free access and guidance on using the transport network in London if you have a disability.
Access to Work
An Access to Work grant is money for practical support to help you do your job. It's for people with a disability, health or mental health condition.
Work Choice can help you get and keep a job if you're disabled and find it hard to work.
Freedom Pass is provided by your local borough councils to give older and disabled Londoners free travel on almost all public transport in London.
Taxicard is a scheme that provides subsidised transport for people who have serious mobility impairment and difficulty in using public transport. Taxicard holders make journeys in licensed London taxis and private hires vehicles, and the subsidy applies directly to each trip.
If you are disabled and cannot use public transport, try Dial-a-Ride. It is a free service, door-to-door, and great for getting out and about.
