About

Alun Tomos started lecturing at the Atrium in 2008 when he was appointed to spearhead the development of the new Welsh Language provision within the Division of Music and Sound. This involved working closely with other HE Institutions in Wales and developing cross-institutional teaching and assessment methods which were used as a model for realising the Welsh Assembly Government’s commitment to establish a federal HE body in Wales (Coleg Cymraeg Cenhedlaethol).
