    Moult v Nottinghamshire County Council [1994] IT/5961/94 (0 other reports)

Rejecting the defence that being a woman was a "personal services" genuine occupational qualification for the post, a Nottingham industrial tribunal (Chair: D R Sneath) in Moult v Nottinghamshire County Council rules that it was unlawful to refuse an application from a man for a teaching post on women-only courses run by an all-women organisation.

Nottinghamshire Women's Training Scheme, which is part-funded by Nottinghamshire County Council, provides training in non-traditional skills for women aged 25 years or older who are unemployed with few qualifications. There are 21 posts in the scheme, including six instructor posts.
