Introduction to Chris

I’m Ellie, the new First Campus Manager (Young People). I’m really excited to have joined First Campus and am looking forward to working with the team to develop a great programme for the 2020/21 academic year.

Hello, I’m Allyson Walters, the new Operations Manager for the First Campus Hub. As a former child carer and someone who experienced early disruption to their education, I’m proud and excited to be working alongside colleagues who are deeply committed to supporting people who experience similar challenges.

Hello, I’m Chris.  I was appointed to the role of First Campus Director following our 2019 restructure but have a long and varied relationship with the partnership having worked in three roles across two of our employing universities.

Good luck to everyone competing this week, let us know if you get to the top 3 on TV!

Due to the public health guidance and concerns around coronavirus (COVID-19), we have cancelled all our face to face programmes. Some of our First Campus activities have already moved online, and we are looking into alternative ways of delivering our summer term projects.

Working in conjunction with ‘Positively mad’, we are hosting a workshop for year 11 students to support their learning and to equip them with essential study skills that will help with their final exams.

We are pleased to announce that our STEMlive event ‘Mission to Mars’ will be launched this year on the 17th and 18th June.

The project offers KS3 and KS4 pupils (Year 9 and above) the opportunity to take part in weekly sessions in a range of Art and Design subjects in the facilities at The School of Art and Design at Cardiff Metropolitan University.
