Headshot of Shakeelah Achibald, a Set Ready trainee alumni

Shakeelah Archibald

Shakeelah came to Set Ready training via our partnership work with Fully Focused.  Her star is very much on the rise in starting in dailies working on sets in Drama Productions for Apple TV and Netflix.  Having seen all the different departments up close, Shakeelah was really keen to pursue opportunities within the Art Department. She successfully secured a props trainees role with Eastenders.  The Set Ready team championed her progression and working in collaboration with BAFTA she was able to secure a bursary towards driving lessons, a key skill if you want to work as a crew member on scripted production, but often difficult to afford when you are starting out in your first crew positions.  Shakeelah is now working on Disney Production in her dream job as an Art Department trainee.
