Learning and Teaching MethodsAt Blackpool and The Fylde College we recognise that all students learn differently and our tutors work with you to ensure that their teaching methods support the way that you like to learn. Your tutors ensure that demonstrations are used whenever possible so you can see the practical skill being used so you can then practise the skill. Following demonstrations, you will then have hands on practical time where you will be implementing the skill learned. As part of the course, you will be provided with a training manual. The training manual allows you to study in your own time and at your own pace. It is designed to supplement the onsite training and it is important that you study the content of the manual throughout your course to ensure that you are properly prepared and can take part in discussions during the teaching sessions.
