Teaching and Learning Methods

At Blackpool and The Fylde College we recognise that all students learn differently and for some it may be a return to the classroom following a break from formal learning.  Our tutors work with you to ensure that their teaching methods support the way that you like to learn.
This course is delivered over 180 hours (18hrs per week), through a blended model of face to face teaching and independent study. There is no work placement requirement.

You will work collaboratively with your peers in group work, presentations and within theory sessions. There will be dedicated individual/self-study time on your programme which needs to be supported by your own study out of the College learning environments.  E-learning is also a key element of all our courses and will involve you using our Canvas and Microsoft Teams platform for independent study and learning.

Within the curriculum we also use a range of on-line apps to support, enhance and motivate learning.  Your tutors will be support you with new technologies used in the classroom.

This course is delivered over 3 days per week with 9 hrs classroom study and 9hrs independent study, total 18 hours per week.
