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.

First Campus, in collaboration with Tonyrefail Community School will be offering pupils the opportunity to take part in monthly enrichment sessions in a range of subject areas led by tutors and students from Cardiff Metropolitan University.

The Confident Futures Campus Visit Day is specifically designed for Young Carers and Looked After Children.
