Course Overview

This course aims to develop your English skills to help with things like daily writing tasks, helping children with homework and progressing at work. It provides a nationally-recognised qualification delivered through Blended Learning – a mixture of mostly online learning and occasional face-to-face teaching methods. The benefits are obvious – learning at a time, pace and place that suits you.

There are many components that comprise an English Blended Learning model, including instructor-delivered content, e-learning, webinars, conference calls, live or online sessions with instructors, and other media and events, for example, bespoke online learning programmes, Facebook, e-mail, chat rooms, blogs, podcasting, YouTube and Skype.

You can enrol onto this course at any time throughout the year. In the first instance, call 01253 504 694 or email Amanda.odonnell@blackpool.ac.uk and we will arrange for you to meet one of our advice and guidance officers to determine if this is the right course for you.
