TV and film are employing more deaf, disabled, autistic and/or neurodivergent people both on and off screen, so there is a need for more Access Coordinators. Access Coordinators manage access and adjustments for everyone working on TV productions. They find accessible solutions so all cast and crew can do their best work and keep good physical and mental health. TripleC, and partners DDPTV, Brazen Productions, C Talent and Access All Areas are running a new professional development programme. This will support you to become an Access Coordinator on High End TV (HETV) drama productions. This programme is funded by the ScreenSkills High-End TV Skills Fund made up of contributions from high-end TV productions made in the UK.
