First Campus is a partnership between higher education institutions, further education colleges and schools in South East Wales.

Kath-Homepage.pngKathryn Maddy is the First Campus Manager and oversees the coordination of work across partner HEIs and FEIs. Kathryn sits on the Steering Group and ensures the project responds to HEFCW targets, as well as agreeing budgets and monitoring spending.

What we do...
We raise aspirations and inspire learners in South East Wales who are traditionally under-represented in Higher Education, providing information, advice and guidance to University.
We have a collaborative working ethic, maximising multi-agency approaches with different sectors to prioritise recruitment to those from Communities First areas.


What makes us special...
FC is a partnership of all the Higher Education Institutions and Further Education Colleges in South East Wales with FC Coordinators all based within Universities. This enables us to open the doors to University campuses and academic staff across South East Wales, for inspirational and aspirational learning programmes, highlighting progression pathways into further and Higher education.


What the FC Manager thinks...
This is an exceptional project to be part of. It is inspirational in many ways, granting a wealth of opportunities, from working with academics and training providers, to community groups and young people.


What schools/ participants think of us...
"The key work of First Campus is to ensure that the universities of Wales belong fully to all the people of Wales - and that is why we are so keen to support their crucial work. We are delighted with the collaborations that we have between the universities and the Glyn Derw and Michaelston Federation - all because of the outstanding work of FirstCampus." – Geraint Rees Federation Head of Michaelston and Glyn Derw High School
