Wise Children are dedicated to diversifying our workforce. The School for Wise Children is our training and outreach branch. The School is running a programme of paid Traineeships to allow those who can’t afford traditional training to gain invaluable experience working on one of our shows.
To find our Sound Trainee on Romantics Anonymous we recruited from local technical colleges and sound courses run by local charities, including Knowle Media Centre. We used our connections in local diversity charities to spread the word. To make the opportunity as accessible as possible we then held a free presentation, delivered by Sound Designer Simon Baker, so those with little or no experience of theatrical sound could understand the role and decide whether to apply.
