     - Political Speed Dating
     To coincide with Local Democracy Week in 2008, students at Swansea College enjoyed some ‘face to face’ time with local Councillors.
     A ‘political speed dating’ session gave the elected members and the students a chance to find out more about the important roles they
     each play in their local community. Students spent just three minutes with each Councillor before moving on to the next. Students can
     ask questions about any aspect of community life from education and the environment to culture, sport, crime and health.

     the end of the day and presented to the other teams, college staff and guests. Our students have been runners-up at the Welsh finals
     of the Global Enterprise Challenge for the past two years so expectations are high!
