We are particularly keen to receive applications from Black Asian and ethnically diverse and/or D/deaf, disabled and neurodivergent cultural sector leaders as well as those with caring responsibilities.
If you are disabled and accepted on to the Fellowship, we will work with you to ensure that we can support your access needs and create the best learning environment for you. We have worked previously with many D/deaf and disabled Fellows. If you would like to find out about their experiences, please let us know and we can explore putting you in touch. British Sign Language versions of the information on our web pages as well as our Essential Guide to Making Your Fellowship Application are available.
Our residentials take place in accessible venues, with space and scheduling for regular rest. We contribute to the cost of support workers (e.g. British Sign Language interpreters), and will provide course materials in alternative formats or a note-taker if you need.
If you have dependents, we will support you to find ways to undertake your Fellowship which work for you, including providing support for childcare/caring costs during residentials. If you may find it helpful to discuss how the Fellowship has worked for Fellows with caring responsibilities, we are able to explore putting you in touch with a previous Fellow.
