Inspiring the next generation

Earlier this year, we launched our Direction 2020 iBroadcast Education Programme; a digital collaboration between ourselves, education technologist company, Aspire 2Be and sports broadcaster, Sean Holley.

Inspiring young people

We're currently in our 15th Anniversary year, and what better way to celebrate than to encourage, engage and inspire young people of all ages to become more involved with the work we do here.

The programme immersed pupils in the world of the Centre through focused activities, exploring various forms of media and technical roles such as script writing, directing, filming, editing and interviewing.

In addition to this, pupils also developed key literacy, numeracy and digital competency skills.

Thrills and skills

Through the iBroadcast programme, students and teachers were able to take advantage of new learning opportunities and resources that promote key life skills such as teamwork and collaboration.

All the films promote the work of our Creative Learning team and the opportunities they provide for young people to get involved with us.

Pupils from Porth Community School, Ysgol Gyfun Gymraeg Plasmawr looked at the work of our radio station, Radio Platfform and our Welsh medium provisions.

Cardiff West Community High School focused their efforts on Rawffest a youth arts festival that we hosted here in April 2019.

The Autism Base at Llanishen High School looked at our choir, Sing Proud Cymru and our Performance Platfform while Porth Community School focused on Together Stronger which consists of our workshops, Artist Hubs and Life Hack events in the Valleys.

Their fabulous short films are being screened here at a closed event on 20 November 2019.
