First Campus Student Mentoring Programme

Student Mentoring Scheme

The First Campus Mentoring Programme has been placing university students, as mentors, in key partnership Communities First Schools across SE Wales since 2003.

This programme aims to support pupils to face their current educational challenges and plan for the future. Mentors visit pupils in the selected schools working with them on a regular one-to-one basis, addressing their individual learning and aspiration needs.

Mentors offer support and advice by acting as role models; they raise pupil's awareness of the opportunities which higher education will offer them and help them recognise that access to higher education is possible and achievable.

The First Campus project is a collaborative partnership consisting of all the Higher and Further Education Institutions in South East Wales. The project is funded by the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales (HEFCW) to raise educational aspirations.
