RISE is an opportunity for deaf, disabled, and / or neurodivergent off-screen talent working in TV at a mid-career level or above. This could include people working in production management, editorial, craft and technical roles.
If the answers to these questions are “yes” then this could be the programme for you!
TripleC DANC is partnering with Channel 4 to deliver RISE, a nine-month mentoring initiative to support and elevate the next generation of senior off-screen deaf, disabled and / or neurodivergent talent in TV.
There are 6 places in total and the key to this initiative is that it is mentee-led. This means that we will take a step-by-step approach to building the programme around the needs identified by the selected mentees, including the type of mentor they want and the specific goals they want to achieve through mentoring.
Applicants may be working in any genre, scripted or unscripted, and in any type of off-screen role – production management, editorial, craft or technical. They must be mid to senior level – ie, have been working in TV for at least three years and progressed already in their career. For example, moved from Researcher to Assistant Producer or progressed from Production Secretary to Production Coordinator.
They must also be encountering barriers to further progression in their career, probably (but not necessarily) due to a lack of support around access and/or attitudes and understanding.
The overarching aim is for RISE mentees to be in a stronger position to move to the next stage of their career once they have taken part.
To be clear, this is not a scheme for entry into the TV industry. For any of those opportunities via Channel 4, please go to the 4Skills website.
Participants must be UK based.
