Image of three blue heads in profile on grey background

What benefits will the University Technical College bring to Swindon? What is it all about and who will be able to attend it?

Date and Time

14 January 2014 - 18:30-20:30


Swindon, United Kingdom - icon_popup  (See map)


Organised by the Swindon local network.

About this event

Swindon is a diverse town with many different industries that make the town very recession proof, but are there enough technical companies within and around Swindon to support another college?

Based on the format of the BBC Question Time programme this is your opportunity, rather than listen to speakers, to raise the questions that concern you.

For those in the audience who are active players and participants in developing and promoting engineering in Swindon this is an opportunity to be involved and to make a positive contribution to its future. The registration form includes the option to post a question and with your contribution we expect an interesting and maybe controversial debate.


18:30 Light refreshments
19:00 Question Time starts
20:30 Close
