During the launch, the first cohort of students learned about creative talent from Robin Moore, the Head of Innovation at BBC Wales, and visiting Professor at USW’s Faculty of Creative Industries (FCI), which is based at its Cardiff Campus.

The first day also included a tour of the campus facilities, meetings with the FCI academic staff, and the students’ first ‘creative challenge’.
