Students at Gower College Swansea are enjoying a week of entrepreneurial activities organised by The Enterprise Team.
The college is supporting Global Entrepreneurship Week UK with a programme of events which gives students the opportunity to rub shoulders with local business people and self-employed professionals.
"We're delighted with this year's programme, especially as it's embracing such a wide range of curriculum areas such as Art and Design, Creative Media, Hair and Beauty, ICT and Digital Technology," says Enterprise Officer Lucy Turtle. "I'd like to thank all our Big Ideas role models / guest speakers for giving so generously of their time and our Student Enterprise Interns too, for their invaluable contribution."
