In an impressive year for B&FC’s triple diploma students, 12 subject areas including Automotive, Computing, Advanced Construction, Health and Social Care Cadets and Art & Design achieved a 100% pass rate with 47% of students on those programmes achieving a high grade (triple distinction star to Distinction, Merit, Merit – or equivalent).


As the anchor educational institution for the Fylde Coast, B&FC delivers education and training which provides skilled employees for industry, drives the economy and offers rewarding careers for its students.


Bev Robinson OBE, Principal and Chief Executive at B&FC, said:


“At B&FC, we offer an innovative and highly responsive curriculum co-created with industry to meet employers’ specific requirements. We are a national leader in higher technical and professional education and training.

“Technical education is extremely important for the UK economy, especially in light of BREXIT, and B&FC believes it has a vital role in providing a workforce with the relevant skills required by industry.

“It is important to celebrate the achievements and successes of our students as they go on to higher education or embark on their careers in industry. I am confident that I speak for everyone at B&FC when I offer my heartfelt congratulations and wish students every success in all their future endeavours.”
