Gower College Swansea chief executive Nick Bennett to retire
The principal of Gower College Swansea has announced his desicion to retire.
Nick Bennett, who was previously principal of Gorseinon College will leave his role in July after 36 years in teaching, including 11 years as a principal in Swansea.
His work as principal and chief executive of the college has largely involved the merger of the two legacy colleges at Swansea and Gorseinon.
“I believe that we have instituted a process of integration that should stand the college in good stead for the future,” he said.

“We have developed and refined an organisational structure that should provide a sound basis upon which to harmonise fully the college’s systems and curriculum. Many of these achievements were formally recognised by Estyn in their inspection of the college in January this year.”
“I count my time at Gower College Swansea and Gorseinon College as amongst the happiest of my career as well as a privilege and great honour. I have worked with two Corporation Boards and management teams who have supported me unstintingly through some difficult times and who have also been there to celebrate our triumphs.”
“I feel doubly privileged to have worked with a fine group of teaching and business support staff whose collective effort has made our college what it is today. I am confident that the college’s future is secure and that it will go from strength to strength. I wish my successor and all staff the very best in the years to come.”
After his retirement, Nick is looking forward to spending more time with his family and on his other interests in the arts and in smallholding.
The governing body of the college will meet shortly to begin the process of selecting a successor to the role.
