Brazen and Triple C Training Scheme Success

 

As part of new BBC drama, Ralph and Katie, Jules brought on Triple C (also known as DANC) to develop and run a remote traineeship for entry-level disabled, deaf, autistic, and neurodivergent creatives who wanted to learn more about what happens behind-the-scenes to get a TV series into production and beyond.

Triple C, recently awarded a BAFTA for their commitment to championing under-represented voices in the industry, worked with Brazen to create the innovative scheme. Thirty trainees were given access to key documents from pre-production through to post, with regular Zoom meetings with Heads of Departments which covered insightful introductions into what each department does on a production.

Carma Scheme offers driving lesson bursaries 

Many jobs in the screen industries require a driving licence – and the financial burden of getting a licence can create a barrier to under-represented voices from breaking into or furthering their screen career.

Jules created the Carma scheme, with support from other industry individuals, to offer £500 grants towards driving lessons for those who would not otherwise be able to afford this essential skill for the industry. Brazen awarded the first round of grants in early 2022 and is currently seeking to partner with an industry charity body to develop a regular Carma scheme to support further grants in future.
