Blackpool and The Fylde College has a strong track record of meeting the educational and training needs of the communities that they serve going back as far as 1892.

The Queen’s Anniversary Prize Award for Higher and Further Education Excellence has been awarded specifically for our bespoke and dedicated work in the field of Project Management in partnership with both regional and national employers.
